Wildlife abounds at Wood Creek Pond. Before we were there a half hour, we already spotted a bald eagle, a great blue heron, and another cool-looking large bird of prey that my friends and I couldn't identify.
The pond is small enough to be seen in an hour or two. The water is clean and cold with portions covered with lily pads. It is surrounded by Mountain Laurel and beautiful woods that look as if they were planted intentionally.
There are a couple of small islands where the blueberries will be ripe in a few short weeks, and the water is teaming with fish. Pickerel seem to be the most abundant species.
The bucolic setting of this pond make it one of the most special places I've ever kayaked, and I highly recommend making a trek to Norfolk for a 2-hour paddle.
