New Year’s Day Paddle

The Virginia Paddlers group launched from the James City County Marina at 10:30 on a cloudy, but unseasonably warm day, with temperatures in the mid-60s. Cold water temps required “dressing for the dunk,” of course. We enjoyed our lunch break at Black’s Point beach, then headed for the “hole in the wall” to return us to Back River, then paddled up Powhatan Creek to the marina.

Lesson learned: circumnavigate the island counterclockwise to go with the current and outgoing tide next time!
