Fall Color Cruise

Today was a great day for a fall paddle. Unseasonably mild at about 78 degrees. Lots of paddlers and sailboats out today. I got a few pictures of the great fall colors, here is the best one. I sure enjoy this time of year.

There were two other homebuilt boats that I saw today. One was a homebuilt kayak of the gentlemens own design. It really looked great with a deep red/brown mahogany color throughout. I didnt get a picture of it as we passed each other. I also met this Sharpie sailer who built his sailboat from plans about 3 years ago. It looked brand new, he said he doesnt have time to get it out much.

I took a break on "Hobie Beach" which is really more dirt and rock than sand. A nice stroll to stretch after 1.5 hours paddling and enjoyed a can of iced tea. For the low, low price of 500$/yr you can "beach" your cat here too, what a deal. There is even a tiki hut and a grill.
Paddled back to the ramp and around the restaurant and called it a day. I hope the weather and my schedule coincide for at least one more paddle this year.
