Kayaking the south shore of Manitoulin Island

We've made it back safely from our kayak trip to the Duck Islands! Here's a few shots of the gorgeousness that is Northern Lake Huron.

Our own private beach!

Overlooking our tents.

Another day in paradise.
We had competitions to see who could hold their arm under water for the longest. I lost at 20 seconds before the ache in my bone became too much. That's not a lot of time to hustle back into the kayak if I dumped. So the plan was to stay IN the kayak. Thankfully, the winds were kind.

Now it's back to work. I'm way behind on my blogging, writing and the thing I do for a living. But so worth it.

Thank you all for your awesome comments on my first vlog and agent news! You guys rock!

Whew, that's a big water snake!
Looks like a piece of heaven to stay on that beach, though. Thanks for letting us have a virtual visit.
