  • Begin your evening adventure by renting a tandem kayak or canoe. Take your time to paddle around, soaking up the last rays of the setting sun. As the colors in the sky start to transition from oranges and pinks to deep blues and purples, find a prime spot along the shore to set up your picnic.
  • After a bit of relaxation and enjoying your picnic under the stars, return to the water for a tranquil night paddle. The still water and starlit sky create a peaceful, romantic atmosphere that's perfect for a heartfelt conversation.
  • End your adventurous date by laying back on the beach, star-gazing, and perhaps spotting a shooting star. Share your dreams, wishes, or simply enjoy the tranquility and each other's company.

Preparation steps:

  • In preparation for your sunset paddle and starlit picnic, first rent a tandem kayak or canoe from a nearby rental shop. Pack a picnic bag with your favorite snacks, and don't forget a cozy blanket. Be sure to check the weather forecast ahead and dress accordingly.
  • Check the local sunset time and plan to start your paddle at least an hour before to enjoy the changing colors. Pack headlamps or small flashlights for the time after sunset. Safety should always be a priority, so having some visibility device is essential.
  • Lastly, pack a star map or download a star-gazing app on your phone. It's a fun way to learn more about the night sky, and will help you find the constellations.

Some tips:

  • Stargazing can be much more enjoyable if you know a thing or two about constellations. Spend some time before your date to learn about the constellations that are visible in September. Combine this with an astronomy app on your phone, and you are set to impress your partner with your celestial knowledge.
  • Even though it's September, the weather near the lake can still be quite chilling after dark. Pack enough warm clothes to make sure both of you are comfortable throughout the evening.
  • Make sure to keep an eye on the time so you don't get caught on the lake after dark without the proper lighting. Be mindful of park and lake rules, some may close after dark.
