Jeanne and I took our Wavewalk kayaks to one of our favorite spots in Wisconsin, Door County.
Temps were great, however we dealt with high winds the first couple of days. Wavewalk kayaks make windy days manageable, where as before we may have had to stick to hiking.
We decided to explore inland the first two days, paddling to the Mud Lake Wildlife area. It was a great area to view many varieties of birds and we had the whole area to ourselves! ( Maybe because of the high winds ). In the afternoon I fished some protected bays around the Peninsula State Park.
Day two we ventured out to the Mink River Estuary. We enjoyed beautiful skies and comfortable temps while viewing birds that were hunting for fish in the shallows, they had better success then me. We monitored weather conditions and decided to watch the sunset at Ephraim. The wind diminished slightly but we still had swells to deal with. We donned our life vests and had a spectacular evening. We had no problems with the occasional swells, the Wavewalk kayaks seemed to be in their element staying on top of the waves comfortably. Remember kayakers, always respect Lake Michigan and the Great lakes…safety first.
The last morning the seas cooperated and turned to glass. We were able to paddle out to Cave Point and enjoy what seemed to be the best water visibility we have ever had in this area.
It was a great vacation and it was made even more enjoyable by the views from our Wavewalks.
