That's All Folks!

Well, that dreaded time has finally arrived... the end of my paddling season! The "V" formations of geese are honking overhead. Trees are bare and dead leaves blanket the ground. The evenings are arriving sooner. The days are colder. Winter is here.

Most importantly, the water temperatures here in North Carolina are getting too low for me to paddle safely... especially since I do not own a dry suit. So, it is time to store my kayak flotilla in the garage and pack up all my gear. Sigh.

But, I'm not going anywhere. I'll still be posting here at Durhamblogger on paddling sports related subjects and will continue to respond to my readers' comments and questions. And I hope that the 3 long months before I can paddle again (Mid-March) pass swiftly!

Now it is time for me to embrace Terri Gullemets' sentiments on Winter...

 "Hot coffee and cold winter mornings are two of the best soul mates who ever did find each other."  ~Terri Guillemets

I hope to join these "soul mates" for many enjoyable times!

 Many thanks to all the folks who are Durhamblogger followers and everyone who stops by to visit at Durhamblogger! I greatly appreciate your reading my blog and your comments! And always remember... Take life one stroke at a time!

  1. At least there are still kayak blogs to read, and videos online that can be watched. Have a good winter, and see you on the water next year.

    1. Rob. Now don't run off and leave Durhamblogger! There are 3 years worth of paddling adventures to read! Several "How to..." posts. Gear reviews. Kayak information. Cold water survival posts, etc. Also, look for my famous (or infamous?) "Most popular blog posts of 2012" posting I'm also on the look out for another kayak! So, more to come!

    2. I wasn't planning on leaving, just some suggestions to pass the time until you can get the kayak on the water again. I'll be going to Florida in December and have 2 kayak trips planned so I'm not ready to put them away yet.:)

  2. I'm sad your kayak trip adventures are at closing for the year, I can't wait to see what next season has in store! =)
