    Starting to get excited!! Only 23 days until we head north!!

    Does anyone know if Lake Anna is a good place for us to bring our kayaks for some flat water paddling?

    Lake Anna is a great place to paddle. I'm planning on bringing my kayak(s) as well. There are a lot of bigger boats and jet skiers in the center of the lake usually the coves and parts of the lake are free from the bigger/speedier boats and in parts of the lake they are limited by speed. My little side kick and I managed to find a large side branch to ourselves once to play bupper kayak, water cannon, and a game of kayak soccer. She learned a few skills while having fun and out of the way of big boats which were not allowed there. Water is very flat, but expect boat chop especially in the more open area.

    I spoke with my wife about food options this evening. She suggested a pot of chilli. Given that it currently still feels like winter here in VA this sounded reasonable (tonight). Not sure if it's going to warm up by the time of the event... Either way, is a pot of chilli acceptable to the others?
