A Good Ending
I was in withdrawal. The ice had kept me off the water for far too long. But yesterday--the last day of the year--Carl and I found a little opening at Bradford beach and launched onto Lake Michigan. A southerly wind was making for a foggy day and, at times, we were unable to see the shore from 100 yards out.
 We had a long "carry" to the opening, so we made like sleds and dragged our boats over the ice shelf.
Carl had on his helmet cam, and I am waiting to see what he shot.
 The landing was dicey because of onshore waves and large chunks of ice floating along the shore. 
All in all, I was a happy camper having finished off the year with a paddle.

Paddle safe...
