Lake Michigan Paddle



Recently, on a very calm morning, Craig and I checked the marine report for Lake Michigan and decided to risk a paddle. I say risk because Lake Michigan's weather and conditions change often and quickly with sometimes disastrous results. Craig and I remember our adventures last summer in Northern Michigan when on one glorious calm morning we paddled on the big lake for a brief, thrilling adventure.

This trip was no less thrilling and as you can see, we were treated to some really beautiful sky conditions. Vivien has suggested a minimalist painting series based on these and I think I'll take her up on it.
