More BWCA longing


In about a month, @julielyda and I will be heading off into the great North woods, paddling Ol' Blue up the Lake 1-4 chain. This was taken on our return trip last year as we paddled out of Fall Lake, snagging another great site with a big sandy beach. Our trip this year will be on small, calmer waters, compared to last year on Fall lake and Basswood Lake, two very large and windy lakes. It's not the relaxing Boundary Waters experience when you have to fight wind on a huge lake, while the person in the front of your canoe weeps softly, constantly in fear of capsizing (and slow demise at the hands of TERRIBLE LAKE SHARKS

On Lake One this year we're hoping to find a more relaxed experience. I am, of course, a salty sea dog who fears no wind nor wave, but @julielyda does not enjoy more dangerous waters, probably even less than she enjoys my singing of the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald as waves are rolling over the canoe

    I think I might have a limited sense of humor as well hearing 'Edmund Fitgerald' while taking on water. It takes a special kind of sea dog to make jokes with that going on.

    Have fun on your trip !
