On a warm Friday morning, we climbed aboard a NYC ferry along with several city dwellers excited for a summer escape. We were on our way to Governor’s Island located only 800 yards from Manhattan, but a million miles away from the crowded bustle of New York City.

Last week I took my kayak on a nautical adventure. Early in the morning I slipped my kayak into the Anacostia River near D.C.’s Pennsylvania Avenue bridge with a destination in mind – Bladensburg or bust!
