A New Hobby!

We started a new sport this past weekend- kayaking!
Mine is on the left, and Steve's is on the right.
Here we are at our favorite little cove on Lake Superior.
The wind was out of the south so we had smooth sailing for our first day out.
The sky was a little threatening after an early morning thundershower passed through.
But the skies quickly cleared, and it turned out to be a gorgeous day.

We followed the Lake Superior coastline for a long ways. Imagine our surprise when we came around one point of land and found a bright yellow sea plane resting on the shoreline. The pilot was alone and seemed to be peacefully reading. We all waved as Steve and I proceeded on our way. I didn't want to intrude on the pilot's privacy and serenity, so I didn't snap a picture until later when he was up in the air.

We stopped and took a break on this empty beach.

And watched the sea plane fly over.

We are loving this new hobby and hope to kayak many beautiful lakes in the area.
We feel so blessed to live in the UP!
