Oswego River was foaming at the mouth, well, surface. The dam was partially open, which seemed to have generated the rich white foam. It was wavy. The water was incredibly warm and was steaming lightly causing thin mist. You could feel its warmth just by putting your hands close to the surface. Undoubtedly it was warmer underneath the surface than above it, but no one volunteered to test. We kayaked towards Oswego for 3 miles against the wind but with the current, then turned around and surfed back – with the wind but against the current. The cold wasn’t so bad once in a kayak, and we enjoyed chatting with fellow paddlers throughout the duration of our trip.
We caravanned to Edgewater Grill for dinner, where we not only enjoyed mouth-watering burgers, but also beer that was cheaper than soda. You can’t beat that!
