We've been having above-average temperatures for the past week and it's wonderful! I love the crisp air of fall, but I'll take warm weather any day. Yesterday was about 75 degrees and Steve and I had a free afternoon, so we took the kayaks out on the Christiana River. We took off in the opposite direction for the first time because of the tide, but the exploration of this tranquil area so rare in Northern Delaware was eventually interrupted by I-95. So much for nature. We did hear birds calling to one another and saw turtles sunning themselves and took in the last of the brilliant maple leaves. I was just happy to be outside, especially in November.
