Happy kayaking!
Paddling in cool weather works great for me. I wear merino wool so if I get splashed or soaked I don't feel cold. Paddling in cold weather close to freezing is good too -- I wear a shortie wetsuit with a merino shirt and maybe a paddle jacket. See what works for you to feel good kayking.
For some trips I bring a drybag with a spare shirt & shorts/light trousers in case I'd rather wear dry clothes home on the bus.
