Dreary Days...
Good Paddling

Yesterday we had a nice off shore wind stirring the lake a bit. It was overcast, and there was a drizzle of rain at times. The paddling was good enough to provide two rescues. Today looks to be the same for our Sunday morning get together as the wind will be out of the east (we being inhabitants of the western shore...but I digress).

We've been having 3-4 footers, but they don't roll in as they would in the open ocean. They are closer together and confused because of the shape of the shoreline around here. We have a large concave shaped natural harbor in Milwaukee. More over, a series of break water walls help to create clapotis waves on the out side.

So, for the foreseeable future it is dreary skies, wet rides and dry suits.

Paddle safe...
