Sunset kayak tour, photo from Bay Trails' siteWith the change in weather to milder - but still quite warm - temperatures, this is a great time to come for kayaking. Do-it-yourself anytime with a local rental, $35/day, and put in on Jackson Creek, the Piankatank River or the Rappahannock: half a dozen public access points are within a couple of miles of Heaven Scent B&B. If you'd like a bit of company or a specific program, Bay Trails Outfitters in Mathews can take good care of you.

Saturday, show up by 9:30 am for Marshes and Mansions, a 3-hour kayak tour suitable for all skill levels. Following a former steamboat route, paddle back in time past exquisite mansions, an historic tide mill and steamboat wharves while exploring quiet coves off the East River in Mathews.

Sunday, enjoy a wonderful Star Gazing Tour, 3 hours of nighttime paddling at its best. Explore a shallow estuary by the light of the moon under a phenomenally starry country sky.

Call Bay Trails at 804 725-0626 to confirm availability and book. I can recommend Bay Trails from personal experience. You'll get help if you need it, and enjoy a laid-back but interesting outing. Homemade cake and refreshments offered after the tour in a convivial atmosphere. And we'll make sure you've got detailed directions for the return drive to Heaven Scent.
