Photos by Shaun Devine. Words by John Streit. This set of photos flashes us back to our current season — autumn — a few years back for a photo shoot in Muddy Creek for our Surf & Adventure/Ocean Rentals annual guide book. Fall time on Back Bay is a special time of year when the brisk, cool air ushers in golden tones as the leaves change color and the sun takes a lower angle toward resting in the west. The vibrant, lush greens of summer give way to the straw hues of plant life gone dormant until their annual springtime resurgence. With pleasant air temperatures and the water still warm from ample summer sunshine, there’s arguably no better way to enjoy our region’s secret season than renting a kayak or standup paddleboard and striking out on your own Back Bay adventure. Or, allow us to show you the unique flora and fauna of the watershed on a guided tour for added insight!
