Lynnhaven Inlet Paddle 6/16/07

Lynnhaven Inlet Paddle 6/16/07
Originally uploaded by jmharper.
Six Moguls and a guest met at the Virginia Beach City boat ramp at the Lesner Bridge, and put in for a great paddle. Jeanine, Chris, Jeff, Jim, Bobbie, Dennis and Debbie paddled towards the Bayville Country Club, then headed out among the islands just south of the bridge, before winding up at Bubbas for lunch and some refreshments on the deck.

From Bubbas it was a short but eventful paddle back to the put-in. The group got a lesson in tidal current, having to work hard to avoid being swept towards the bridge and Chesapeake Bay. Jim was so distracted by the current that he paddled into a piling fifteen feet from Bubbas ramp, flipping over and earning a teabag award nomination!

It was a perfect day for a paddle- warm, but not too hot, with a slight breeze, and plenty of sun! Come join us for the next perfect paddle!
