First time - Nawney Creek




Okay I am trying to get back in the swing of things here, at least I am making it once a month. I really need to get off my butt and order the new rack for my truck.

I have launched a few times from Drum Point, and every time I had goals on the other side of Back Bay, and I had always said to myself that I would venture up Nawney Creek, well today I made good on that idea.

The creek is not all that long, about 5 miles from the launch to the bridge round trip, and with the exception of the short bit of open water. looks like it would be an easy trip for almost anyone...
