Wow! What an incredible week we are having. We started off last Friday night with an amazing sunset Birding Tour with our friends from DelMarVa Birding weekends. We also enjoyed hosting a second birding tour on Sunday morning. The overall DelMarVa Spring Birding Weekend was a huge success with a record number of species identified during this prime migration season.
On Saturday we hosted our first school group of the season. We were thrilled to once again hosts the senior class from Newfield High School in upstate NY. The kids had a blast enjoying the warm sunny day on the water. We started off with lunch, then our infamous kayak tennis ball game, and wrapped it up with a beutiful calm padldle to the salt marsh. We always enjoy this group of kids and they tell us their visit to Ayers Creek is the highlight of their trip.
With the warmer temps we are getting a lot of folks on the water this week. We have had paddlers from age 3 to age 75 out enjoying thiese amazing spring days. We can’t wait for the rest of our school groups to start their field trips next week. Getting young people out on the water and having them spend quality time outdoors is the most rewarding part of the job.
We know we are fortunate to be able to do what we love everyday and look forward to sharing some time on the creek with you this spring.
