One Of The Good Guys
On our way up to the Door County Symposium JB and I stopped at this unassuming cafe in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, a small town on the shores of Lake Michigan. Why this cafe? Well, it wasn't just because of the kayak sum planter in front. Is was because of who and why there are similar planters all around this small town. It's all because of Phil, and he is owner and chief cook at the cafe.

Part of the NE Wisconsin Paddler's group, Phil has been a driving force in helping that organization grow into a real force in paddling. The group is strong and active offering outings, regular paddles and lessons. In fact, they support members wishing to become instructors. Recently, Phil was honored by the ACA for his good work.
That's Phil in back in his white apron. If you're ever in the area you ought to stop in and say hello. Tell him you kayak and that Silbs sent you. BTW, the food is great and reasonable.

Paddle safe...
