I was able to get out on the water this AM, which was, needless to say, a very good thing. I set my kayak in Piscataway Creek, MD, a Potomac tributary several miles downriver from DC. I’ve been there a few times and am always impressed with it. I dropped the boat in the water in thick fog and September chill. I paddled along the northern shore – it is a wide, shallow tidal bay at that point. It was beautiful and still the pictures can’t really do it justice.
Gradually the fog burned off. I headed up the true creek for a while. There was lots of bird life back in there – I got buzzed by a great blue heron at one point – and few signs of people after a few houses by the mouth. A great morning on the water.
