Baptised on the Baptism River

My first creek run. Had a great day on the Baptism with only one little bump at the end. Could kayaking get any better than this?

Split Rock River

Rare sighting of a beautiful river. I can see why it's considered a favorite on the North Shore.

Verm Today

Rosie and I hit the Verm today. Even being at a low level there was a small wave on RR and Donut...perfect for begining surfing. By time we left Rosie was surfing it up on Donut! I haven't been on the Verm in a long time. It felt good to be back down there!

St Louis

Spent the last two days on the upper St. Louis...good people and good paddling. For what seems like forever...when I top the rise on the hill above Duluth I have always gotten the feeling of coming home even though I have never lived in Duluth. I realize this is related to the fact that I grew up in Coos Bay, Oregon which is a major shipping port but I can't deny that Lake Superior and her personality jives with me on a spiritual level. Tuesday before leaving I sat on the dock at the Outpost thinking about this. It felt so much like home. I do have plans on retireing up on the North Shore...I just wonder how much I'll be paddling when I'm 64.

High Speed now

Look close and you'll see there is a purple Clematis growing with my William Baffin rose. Great combination!

Just got high speed internet and wanted to play with it. Here's shots from my garden.
