Mason's Neck

Mary paddling

This was one of those paddles where Mary wanted to get some practice in her new boat.So it was off to Mason's neck where we were joined by Roxanne and Jim. It was a warm sunny and as we were getting started we couldn't avoid noticing that the water was already covered with a slimy growth of algae for the first couple of hundred feet going out into the river. It was also a bit windy which gave Mary a chance to get used to being out in some waves on our way to one of the islands. After paddling out to the island we came back to one of the beaches on the mainland and stopped for lunch. From there we headed for Kane's creek. Then back to the put-in.
