Now that we’re half way through September it’s safe to say we’ve cleared summer…or have we? Temperatures are still balmy and the afternoon rains continue to fall, but that’s the beauty of being in South Florida; we don’t truly experience seasons like everyone else. Other parts of Florida (north of Orlando) will experience more of the fall and winter seasons than us thin blooded brats, but they can keep their achy bones and chapped lips on those wet cold February days. In the meantime there’s still lots to do and lots going on before the influx of snow birds make their way down from Canada. In some sense there will be more outdoor opportunities to explore that may have been more challenging between the heat and the rain. A good example would be paddle sports (such as kayaking or canoeing). September/October are great times to get out on the water without being intimidated by surprise thunderstorms or braving humid days with high heat indexes. So get out on the water!
