Say It Isn't So
It is still warm around here, and the big lake is the warmest it's been all summer. But the humidity is low. The weather is perfect, just the way I like it, but I am not so easily lulled into false bliss. All this is a set up, a preamble, a last hurrah. All this means that fall is coming...and you know what that means.Frost and crisp morning temperatures and gorgeous fall leaves. Lovely, yes? But this, too, is a set up, a preamble, maybe even a warning: Winter will soon follow.And that means ice and the dreaded dry suit and torn gaskets and dangerous landings. I tell you, the sky is falling. What to do? Well, some of the folks around here are already planning and reserving camp sites for a September and an October weekend up in Door County. Ha! We laugh in the face of the elements because we know that when it really gets cold, when there is really a lot of ice, real sea kayakers can... ...retreat to the pool.
Paddle safe...
