Today at 7.24 pm the sun passed the equator: spring has started! It still feels like winter though. And that is not only a feeling: the statistics show that it's far to cold for the time of the year. See the picture above.
Anyhow, it won't last much longer till temperature rises and paddling becomes more comfortable. But water is still cold. So pay attention to Bonnie's hypothermia warning! Have a look at the site of Atlantickayaktours for how to dress (I like the animation!).
