It was simply too pretty a day not to get out on the water for at least a little while so I decided to head down to Lovitt’s Landing and paddle over to the visitor center at the entrance to Back Bay NWR. There was a pretty stiff wind out of the southeast, so I chose to head straight over to the refuge, take a break, then head south before coming around the end of Long Island and back to the launch site.
There weren’t many photo-ops, but it was a beautiful day – even with the strong wind and chop. Other folks obviously had the same idea as I saw about a dozen other paddlers during the day. Although I didn’t see any, two other paddlers mentioned seeing quite a few snakes – water moccasins, to be specific. I suppose that’s another effect of the mild fall weather we’re having.
