We have spent several days a week in our kayaks for the past few weeks. We have just seen a few ducks and geese this year, but a wide variety of other wildlife.
And a couple of other things not from a kayak.
We had 4 days of beautiful weather– bluebird skies, air temperatures around 80º, water temps in the mid to upper 50’s, so we headed for some of our favorite rivers.
We didn’t find any herons and only a few ducks and geese, but there was still a lot to see and hear. The frog sounds were so loud that it drowned out the traffic noise on the Pompy.
After a delightful paddle on Canadian Thanksgiving, the weather turned cold and we put the kayaks away for the winter.
For the most part the fall colors in the Upper Valley were muted.
We had a white Thanksgiving,
and the Connecticut was ice covered by mid December.
