Winter's back, and Proxigean Tide approaches!
Nice little thaw we had there for a few days. There was hardly any ice in the Allegheny at all. Saturday was about as nice a paddling day as you could ask for out there.
Looks like the same was true here, too!
We now return to our regularly scheduled season.
I hope Saturday behaves itself - we've got another proxigean tide coming up on Saturday, and Sebago's been plotting a proper Proxigean Paddle. I'm particularly psyched because proxigee makes the highs higher & the lows lower, and the timing of the last one was good for catching the looooow low, and this time we'll be out on the other end of the cycle seeing the high high water. Conditions permitting, some of us want to head out to Ruffle Bar - there's a marsh there that lets you paddle quite far into the island at normal high water& we're wondering if with this, we might be able to paddle all the way through to the beach on the other side! Whether we can or not, it'll be most interesting to see the flipside of the extreme tide I posted about back in December '08.
And there's definitely a chance of seals!
