Better Late than Never
Summer, it seems, is feeling guilty about the lousy job it did and is now supplying us with warm days and warm waters. We would usually expect colder temperatures this time of year, but we are experiencing a flood of 80 degree (F) days in Wisconsin. Combine that with a slightly onshore wind, Lake Michigan was warm enough yesterday for me to be out rolling without paddle top. Considering the cool nights, this would be a most excellent time to sneak in a camping weekend.Even the inland lakes are seeing heavy traffic. Above is a scene from "Gilligan's Island," a shallow in the Yahara River (near Madison) where boaters gather to party and save gas.

If all goes well, I may be paddling with JB (hope his boss doesn't read this), a pleasure I haven't had for a couple of weeks.

Nothing heavy, just wanted to put that out.

Paddle safe...
