David Unger of Elgin spent Tuesday afternoon soaking up the sunshine as he paddled his kayak from the Fox River Shores Forest Preserve in Carpentersville up to the Algonquin dam and back. Unger said he never really had to take a break from the hobby this year given the mild winter temperatures. He was able to get out for a paddle on Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, something usually reserved for warmer months. He also chose his route wisely Tuesday, taking on the current by paddling upstream first, then enjoying the ride on the way back south.
