Early Morning

Yes it was a bit cold when I started, about 27F, even a bit breezy, and quite grey and cloudy. Later in the morning, the sun occasionally popped out along with some blue sky and it warmed to 42F.

I didn't see anyone else out on the lake, but I did hear the occasional sound of gunfire from the hidden duck hunters. The sound is a bit unnerving, but I've paddled this lake long enough to know which areas to stay away from during the season. And though I can't usually see them with all their camouflage, I'm a pretty visible presence with all my orange and yellow.

I'm really glad I made it out, it was a good paddle, and a great workout.
