A little cold never stopped us paddling on our watery living room to see the sun set and the full moon rise. It will probably be too cold for the bats to come out, but it will be lovely anyway. Dress warmly in layers.
First, we will use the WWALS infrared thermometer to check temperatures. If you’re ill in any way, please stay home. Once you get there, there is plenty of room on the boat ramp to distance, and on the water everybody is usually pretty far apart anyway. Wear a mask on land, and we will have some available. No shuttle is needed.
