Image Gallery: Delmarva Peninsula by kayak

A decade ago, Don Baugh planned a formidable 60th birthday gift for his friend Tom Horton. Baugh, an environmental educator, and Horton, a nature writer for the Baltimore Sun, had helped popularize kayaking in the Chesapeake Bay in the 1990s. Baugh proposed what Horton called a “victory lap”: a month-long, 500-mile paddle around the Delmarva Peninsula. Blistered hands and soaking rains aside, they enjoyed the adventure enough to try it again. Last summer they retraced their route and brought along two Virginia Tech alumni: natural resources conservation graduates Alexandra Crooks (’12 B.S.) and Stephen Eren (’11 B.S.).
