Her Mood Is Changing
She being Lake Michigan. Even the gentle rollers coming from the NW yesterday were spraying the stone break wall at south shore.
For the first time this season there is ice forming on the wall and on our decks. It was 33F yesterday but, because of the lack of wind, it was a pleasant day to be out there. It is probably a good thing, these changes of season, since we often paddle the same waters. Variety and some eye candy is always welcome.
Leslie (enjoying a rare week day off) and I had it to ourselves except for one boat with two duck hunters. They are hidden along the wall on the left just ahead of Leslie, and when they started shooting it was like being in a war zone. Still, come the end of the day, this can be a very serene place.

Paddle safe...
