After the paddle I decided it was well past time to test the drysuit, so I waded in.
It was a useful exercise, and it makes me love my boots all the more. Next step, trying some actually rescues (In a pool or warmer water.)
Not right away, this is how the water looked on Thursday.

Despite the ice, I'm still optimistic. It's supposed to warm up this weekend, one good tide cycle and all that ice could be melted or off in the ocean!
