The title says it all – the water is deceptively still. This section of the Potomac River looks like a mirror at times, and doesn’t appear to be moving at all – but under the quiet surface, strong jets and undertows await the unsuspecting. Cindy and I have kayaked at various locations up and down the length of the Potomac, and the hidden currents can be powerful enough to nearly rip a paddle out of your hands.
