I was surprised to see how beautiful “up-state” Michigan was…. a very enjoyable drive. More text to be added…
I decided to try and kayak here… but note the very large flag blowing straight out… it stayed that way most of the time.
My expression reflects how I felt about the conditions. I put in from ramps in a harbor…. and paddled out to the mouth of the harbor… where it goes into the Lake. The wind was strong and the waves were high. It just seemed foolish to go farther when I was alone and no one had my schedule. So, chicken Swankie turned back to shore.
I waved to some folks on a boat… saying I was kayaking all 50 states and asked if the Harbor could count as Michigan????
Met these two jetskiers… and told them it was really choppy out there… and they gleefully said, “Oh, good!” and off they went.
Oh, well, I know Michigan has more water…. and I’m heading toward Detroit.
