Put-in at Oyster

Put-in at Oyster
Originally uploaded by jmharper.
Put-in this year was at Oyster, a few miles east of Cheriton, and opposite Cape Charles. The public boat ramp was perfect for our purposes, and we set off down the channel.

It was a hot day, with the high temperature reaching 91 degrees, but while out on the water, we were able to enjoy a nice breeze. Conditions were near perfect for a paddle, unlike in 2005, where our Oyster paddle was cut short due to a strong wind.

We paddled Ramshorn Channel, and Brockenberry Bay. As is usual at Kiptopeke, we hit some tidal flats, but were able to navigate through the deep portions.
