Kayaking Gordon’s Creek, Williamsburg, VA

The Virginia Paddlers Meetup group were “dressed for the dunk” on 52 degree water, wearing dry suits and neoprenes. We were worried that we’d be too warm in the spring sunshine, but it was very pleasant in the slight breeze on the water. The osprey nests were very active. Lots of people were fishing from the pier.

The renovated shoreline at Chickahominy Riverfront Park is coming along nicely, with the new tent camp sites due to open late spring or early summer. The county has created three sandy beach areas between the riprap, which should be nice for putting in paddle craft, but I’m not aware of their plans to put in walk ways from the sites and the slope is fairly steep. Can’t wait to see the finished project!
