The chill more than the virus has kept me and my boats off the lakes and rivers of Western Virginia this spring, but not this weekend. I was out yesterday and today, paddling to beat the cabin fever.
I wasn’t the only one with the idea today at Carvins Cove where the crowd was building quickly by late morning (I went early) and yesterday my friend Susan and I had Tinker Creek emptying into the Roanoke River pretty much to ourselves.
Today I saw a lot of floating craft, mostly people fishing from various boats, but there was one sailboat, sailed by a guy who looked thoroughly hung over, but also pretty relaxed.
Here’s what it looked like.
