As we approach September things begin to change. The water temperature (now around 78.9) is beginning to drop along with the daily temperature range (now 53 – 79 F). We notice a bit of mist on the water as we begin our journey. Sunrise is at 6:09am when we enter the water.
At the Sleightsburgh, where we saw a throng of white egrets yesterday, today we see a throng of mallards. The lighthouse never disappoints at sunrise. But no drama in the clouds. Hotel No. 1 (US Coast Guard Marker) is booked with cormorants, as usual.
As we row northwest along the waterfront, behind the Kingston Gas tanks, we see a deer on the waterfront. I take a break an disembarque to stretch my legs. The ride to the beach was a bit of a struggle but once you get to the beach area, the water is flat, and very easy to navigate. Very quiet. Just a couple of DPW guys up in the parking lot. No one on the beach or in the water.
All in all, it was a very nice 5 mile row.
