Vrooom. There goes a power boat. Vroom vroom. There goes another power boat. Brace for the wave … waves from passing boats and jet skis brought an element of excitement to my paddle boarding experience on Lake Anna (see map).
I launched my paddle board from the marina located on the east side of the route 208 bridge and headed toward the power station two miles away. The late-September day was sunny and warm with temperatures in the mid-70s as I paddled under the 208 bridge.
