Checking out Fairhaven Bay at a time when icy season this year got skipped

Trash Paddler (Jan 17) - Yesterday I wondered how our record-breaking 'January Thaw' affected one of Old Man Winter's favorite haunts around here, Fairhaven Bay, so...I set out from Sherman's Bridge and paddled down a nicely-full and ice-free Sudbury River at Weir Hill (opening photo).  read more...

Winter times not visible in Assabet River this year

Trash Paddler (Jan 16) - Here in southern New England we experience some form of a 'January Thaw' almost every winter.

New Year'S Plunge Alternative - Paddler welcoming the new year on water

Trash Paddler (Jan 3) - Yesterday while many folks were preparing to kick off the New Year with a Polar Plunge I was doing just the opposite and donning attire meant to insulate me from any unplanned immersion.  As a paddler my intent was to welcome in the New Year on the water rather than in it.   read more...
