Lake Michigan

Our new Guillemot on Lake Michigan. We stayed at Northport. At the very tip of the Leelanau peninsula. Grand Traverse Bay.

Lake Michigan, unsalted . No sharks or jelly fish. Nothing that will eat you.

The water is so clear, you can see the bottom at 30 or 40 feet deep.

The Guillemot is a true sea kayak. It takes some getting used to before you get the feel of her handling. At first it is hard to keep it going in a straight line. But after an hour or so it feels like all you have to do to turn is think about it.

The cockpit is way to small for me, but it is just right for Donna.

We got a lot of attention every where we went. Everyone had very nice things to say.
