I departed the beach at the park and began paddling towards the Big Meadow Trail Beach with the intention of landing and scouting the area for some fossilized shark teeth. The wind made the paddle a good workout and I quickly regretted my decision to not bring my spray skirt.
Once I hit the Big Meadow beach, I was rewarded with some nice shark teeth and really enjoyed looking at the marshy areas around the beach. A Cottonmouth snake was resting next to a fallen tree and it gave me a case of the jitters, reminding me to be careful where I step. After walking up to the observation platform, I returned to my kayak and enjoyed a choppy return paddle.
From Fredericksburg (I-95), take Rt. 3 east, go about 40 miles to the park's entrance, turning left onto Rt. 347.
