Life in the dunes along Lake Michigan
perfect shot. 🙂
Thank you, it was cold and hard won. 🙂
having spent 7 years in Montreal I do miss the proper winters you get in that part of the world. well… mostly.. not the freezing rain.. but the other stuff was good.
Montreal, you’ve probably paddled the St. Lawrence Seaway then. I crossed over it on a bridge long ago before I took up sea kayaking.
I am not a fan of freezing rain but I am amazed at the many forms ice takes on the Great Lakes in the Winter.
Yep, and quite a lot of canoe touring on the lakes and so on of Northern Quebec and Ontario. The very last thing I did before hopping on a plane back across the Atlantic was a canoe trip with friends on Lake Ontario in a snowstorm, having packed my apartment in Montreal I visited friends in Toronto and flew from there. Still make visits back however, have been unable to cut the ties completely. Happily 🙂
Ah…miss winter? I saw a video..I’m going to give you the guys FB link, his Stand Up Paddling video he released this week is pretty awesome. St. Joseph is south of here right where the shoreline of Lake Michigan starts bending around Indiana and the bottom of the Lake.: https://www.facebook.com/SethHaleyMedia/videos?fref=photo
Soo… Do you paddle a lot?
Not as much as I’d like to. My sea kayak is an 18′ epic touring. She’s a bit big for me but she knows where I want to go before I do and handles beautifully when laden for island camping. This past summer we took up crewing for sail racing. I love it, have much to learn but Tuesdays and Wednesdays were filled with sailing. We got up to Les Cheneux on Huron and had planned to do a bit around Drummond Island but conditions did not cooperate.(Don’t you hate planning and spending money to get somewhere and the weather won’t play along.) We pretty much moved here 3 years ago for easier access to water for kayaking…and took up sailing.
sounds ace. I was sort of other way around, grew up with lots of sailing, little bit of kayaking.. now completely the reverse… but what with bicycles and kayaks there’s no time for sailing, haven’t owned a boat for years.
I would have loved that.
P.s thanks for the link above, missed that earlier 🙂
YW Isn’t his work great?
