Six Moguls made it out to the end of Mill Landing Road in Virginia Beach for the Nanney's Creek paddle. It was a beautiful day for a great paddle.

Put in is at a rustic Fish and Wildlife service boat ramp with plenty of parking. There is about 100 yards of open water on Back Bay before reaching the mouth of the creek.

Sandy and Peggy are enjoying a brief pause in the paddling.

To the Other Side

This is our third year paddling Nanney's Creek. Each year, we paddled to the bridge and turned around. This year, Peggy pushed the envelope- wanting to see the other side. Here she is seen making the return trip after the other paddlers declined to make the trip.

Made it!

Peggy emerges unscathed from her adventure under the bridge. She benefitted from a larger cockpit opening that allowed her to get lower in her boat

On the Way Back
