Amazing time of year. Temps in mid 40's following a month of cold weather. Supposed to be in the 50's over the weekend. Snow disappearing quickly and hope to have open put-ins as soon as maybe tomorrow.

Nice photographs of Lake Michigan.
I was stationed at Fort Custer Air Force Station near Battle Creek for a couple of years in the mid-1960's. Prettiest scene I remember is seeing the Mackinac Bridge in the rear view mirror of my English roadster as I left the lower peninsula.
The highlight of my tour in MI was a pretty, tall, blonde girl named Carol let me paddle her family's canoe. It was my first cedar & canvas canoe on some pond or slough down by the little town of Athens. I have been in love with the beauty and craftsmanship of wood and canvas boats since then.

Great story BB. You know you're dealing with a real paddler when the memory isn't about the pretty blonde, it's her father's wood/canvas canoe.

I drove down to the beach last night too.
