Up Gray’s Creek, Surry, VA

This very warm, humid, sunny day was saved by a good breeze on Gray’s Creek. We could have enjoyed exploring more side creeks, but the thought of eating excellent seafood influenced our decision to keep it at about 6 miles.

We saw the usual wildlife: an eagle, ospreys, gray herons, green herons, kingfishers, red-winged blackbirds, buzzards, hawks, lots of fish in the shallows (possibly gar?), tadpoles, fiddler crabs, and one turtle’s head popping up.

Two thumbs up for The Surry Seafood Company. Fresh, well prepared, and well served.
