A late season paddle on the Napanee River

With the paddling season nearing an end for another year, I took advantage of a beautiful late-October afternoon to paddle a stretch of the Napanee River that I hadn't yet visited.

While most leaves have fallen here in L&A, the drive from Napanee was still a pretty one. I took the scenic route to the boat launch on Curl Road in Stone Mills between Camden East and Yarker.

A Colourful Paddle on Deerock Lake

Since I started kayaking last year I've had a few people mention to me how great a spot Deerock Lake is to paddle. I've had it on my list of places to visit and I finally made the trip on a sunny morning in early-October.

They weren't exaggerating. Deerock Lake Conservation Area may be the absolute most beautiful place I've ever been to.

Route Itineraries for a Perfect Colour Tour

Autumn is my favourite season. The humidity of the summer is mostly gone, the nights are cool, and the days are still warm enough to keep the heavy jacket in the back of the closet.

With the exception of raking the lawn - and raking again, and again - there's nothing not to like about this time of year. Despite the work that goes along with keeping the yard in order, seeing the colours that Mother Nature unveils every fall is well worth it.

The views from the water this time of year are amazing. The brilliant colours of fall reflecting off still lakes and rivers are spectacular, and the cool autumn air makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
