Thanks to Wes and Sandy for suggesting our next paddle.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5
We will paddle Smith Creek and some of the Northwest River. Bring something for lunch, as well as whatever other subsistence you desire.
The put in is near Northwest River Park in Chesapeake. Baum Road is just off of Indian Creek Road in Southern Chesapeake. You can get there via Gallbush Road from the Chesapeake Expressway, or from Pungo Ferry Road or Blackwater Road. Check the Google Maps link, and scroll down to Baum Road.
See you on the water!

Most mice arrived Friday night, but a few showed up Saturday for the day. Twelve mice in all made it across to the Eastern Shore.

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.

It was another great weekend at Kiptopeke. Hope you can join us next year! Rumor has it we will find some shadier campsites!
