Forget All the wetsuit/drysuit/slpashtop stuff! Today I paddled in neoprene shorts and regular wicking cool weather shirts! My glasses fogged up a couple times, because I got so warm. I actually considered taking a dip in the cool water one time because I got so warm. The air temperature was near 80 and the water temperature was near 60!
It still makes sense to bring a change of clothes and long swims and storms could make you really cold, but for the most part swims are not dangerous at these temperatures.
After the paddle on Falls Lake we went to Crabtree Tavern in Raleigh and had a good meal.
I'm so happy Spring is here! Next week we will be in Florida to visit family and paddle some more!
