Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity II


Coming upon this little island was an unexpected surprise. The NOAA forecast for Lake Huron that day called for 3 to 4 foot waves and showers. As it was just the two of us and we didn’t know the area except for our charts we opted for the very well sheltered channel. We were paddling Les Cheneaux Islands (Some Michiganders like to twist that French name and call it Snowy Islands.) a remarkably beautiful place well loved and revered by classic wooden boat lovers.

Les Cheneaux Islands (French: “The Channels”) are a group of 36 small islands, some inhabited, along 12 miles of Lake Huron shoreline on the southeastern tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the United States. The name is French for “the Channels”, noting the many channels between the islands in the group. They are about 30 miles northeast of Mackinac Island and about 35 miles south of Sault Ste. Marie. The islands are a popular resort and boating and kayaking area. The nearby communities of Hessel and Cedarville on the mainland offer marinas, camping, lodging, restaurants, and shopping. The Les Chenaux Islands Antique Boat Show & Festival of the Arts has been held on the second Saturday of each August since 1976 in Hessel. It is the world’s largest antique wooden boat show.

    • Thank you, I was with someone I love when I paddled past that tiny island with its faerie castle and shot the photo so it, the photo, has a lot of love and happiness in it. And may you have a weekend filled with light and happiness. 🙂
