Kayaking the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge

POST #    1823

Friday afternoon, we went on a sunset kayak trip in Virginia Beach's Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. There wasn't exactly a sunset to be seen as it was very overcast. About halfway in, it actually started to drizzle. The tour lasted about two hours and it was a lot of fun despite some people not carrying their weight (don't look at me). Our guide said that we generally did a pretty good job, considering that some people just row in circles the whole time.

Some of the animals we saw included a muskrat, water moccasin, osprey, blue herring, and a bald eagle, the first time the tour guide has actually seen one while out with a group.

One of the great things about the experience was how there were no other people. I guess that's what happens when you have an activity at 5 p.m on Friday.
