Just kidding, thanks for posting.
The weather has been great lately for paddling, and after looking at your report should most likely be taking my rod with me also. Glad you made the most of your day, and thanks for sharing.
As for your comment about the park being so empty, my paddling buddy was saying just last week how in the Winter the paddler'ss feel like they have the park to themselves. You really get used to the lack of people, and are able to get where you need to go in a heartbeat. Then Spring comes and the tourons re-appear, and you realize just how good you had it.
Get it while you can
