Have I ever mentioned that I consider the Kayak Season to go from March to December (longer if the river doesn’t ice over). So November is in season, with its own advantages and some disadvantages.
- Better access to many areas that don’t allow “out-of-towners” from Memorial Day to the end of September.
- On the North River mosquitoes are not a problem due to the brackish water. On any fresh water lake or river they are a big problem. After the first hard frost in November…goodbye.
- Hot spots in the “hot” months, no parking. November, no problemo.
- Photography, high, bright summer sun doesn’t always make for the best conditions. The low late fall sun can give your shots better tones and shadow.
- Set that alarm clock. you need to be back to the landing by 4PM, the sun is going down. The short days make waiting for the tide difficult.
- Water temperature isn’t that bad yet, but some days the air can be a little brisk, meaning that going out in just a bathing suit and t-shirt ain’t that good a idea. (If that seems a little off, remember, I’m a Dane.)
- How many pictures can you take of bare branches and brown grass.
