As a paddler, the best way to see and experience the Chesapeake is by sea kayak. Sea kayakers throughout the Chesapeake Bay Region have begun a series of paddling trips that span the newly accessible 100-mile Anne Arundel County Water Trail.
In this photo taken last month, members of Washington Kayak Club pose to celebrate our safe return from our first inaugural 14-mile round-trip paddle from the West/Rhodes River to Deep Creek after laboring through a small craft advisory on the Chesapeake Bay the last five miles. It would have not have been possible were it not for the new car-top boat ramp at Shady Side, MD.
