Paddle to the Mink Islands

We're back from our fall kayak trip, this time we explored islands in Georgian Bay. It was a chilly one this year - and the gale force winds made for some exciting moments! But the scenery made it all worth it.

Is all that gear going to fit in your kayak, Den?
(It did!)

Love the rocks

Cooking supper

Soup goes down nice when it's four degrees Celcius out!

Anyone have kayak adventures they want to share?

Sounds cold! But what stunning views! The last couple of summers, I've kayaked in Boston and Cambridge on the Charles River. A different experience for sure!

Beautiful scenery. I love your adventures.

Those rocks are stunning. I used to row for crew (in Maine) in college, and I was surprised at how closely kayaking translated to the feeling. I miss both, but I don't miss doing either in the cold. :) Now I live in toasty Massachusetts.

We drove through Canada on the way to Chicago this summer, since the kids all had their passports. We saw Niagara. I thought about trying to get in touch with you at the time, but was pretty sure we weren't close to where you live. :) You know, Canada is a big place. :)

However, it would have been super fun to meet up! :)
