August 19 – Younger Member Kayaking Event Recap

DC Monument Kayak Tour Event Recap

Saturday, August 19th ASHE Chesapeake’s Younger and Young at Heart members took a trip down to DC with Chesapeake Kayak Adventures. The weather was beautiful, it was a great day to be out on the water. The day started with a safety discussion and paddling technique lesson on shore at the Columbia Island Marina.

Then, the group of 13 took off and started their adventure at the base of the Pentagon. They paddled across the main channel of the Potomac River and headed upstream, passing most of the monuments along the water.

The day continued with sights along the Georgetown Waterfront and stopping for lunch at Roosevelt Island. A small hike on the island led to the Teddy Roosevelt Memorial, which is a beautifully designed plaza consisting of an open granite-paved plaza with fountains and pools, a water-filled moat spanned by foot bridges, 21-foot-hight granite tablets engraved with historic Teddy Roosevelt quotes, and in the center of the plaza, a 17-foot-high bronze statue of Roosevelt.

After spending some time exploring the island, the group headed back to the marina, this time paddling on the opposite side of the river to allow for some photo opps!

After docking and packing up the gear, drinks and conversations were enjoyed by all while listening to the tunes of the live band playing that evening.  This event was one for the books and ASHE YM will look to doing more like this in the future!

ASHE Chesapeake would like to thank again Chesapeake Kayak Adventures for such an awesome day and also iDesign Engineering for providing Panera Bread lunch packages and helping with the organizing of the event!

To stay up to date on all upcoming Younger Member events, be sure to email Amanda Lafleur at Amanda.lafleur@kci.com.



The next ASHE Younger Members event (for the young and young-at-heart) will be a guided kayak tour of Marley Creek and several World War I freighters.

The group will stop for lunch at Rams Head Dockside (lunch is not included in the event costs). Registration is limited to 20 kayakers, so please register today by sending your RSVP to Amanda Lafleur at amanda.lafleur@kci.com.

Please note that all participants of the kayak tour will need to sign a waiver.  A copy is provided at American Kayak Association Adult Waiver form.
