Kayaking Assateague Channel

Posted by Caroline Hershey

What not to do!

It was a kiss the ground… oh it’s mud and shells… right! kayaking trip today. With the waves breaking over the front of the kayaks, AWK!, we knew we were in trouble. We had gone into Little Oyster Bay and then into Big Oyster Bay and then made our way into the Assateague Channel just to see what was around the next stand of grasses. Big mistake. great-blueThe wind had whipped up and even though the tide was going our way, paddling was difficult. We made our way to a duck blind and glued ourselves to it for a while to rest.  A Great Blue Heron standing out in the middle fishing was probably yukking it up at our expense.  Did you know there are over 81 species of birds that nest on Assateague? We are usually treated to quite a show of different ones each time we go out kayaking which makes it worthwhile. I’ll still be very glad to sit and knit the rest of the afternoon. WHEW!
