No madness weekend

The April Madness Greenlandic kayak thing ended up canceled for lack of registrations. Better luck next year.

We went out Sunday. The ice is off Shelburne Bay, the wind was up from the North, and the lake is a few inches over flood level (100 feet), which meant it was darn close to the road heading for the boat launch, with whitecapped waves coming even closer.

The boatyard had the ferry Grand Isle in drydock. Must have been a project to hoist it up there, unless it just took a running start up a ramp (sorry, still thinking like a kayak up on the ice)

We paddled out of the bay and around the point about as far as the back side of the boatyard. Out in the main lake the waves were reflecting pretty well off the cliffs. Too much of a ride to use the camera.

On the way back, a lunch break in about the same place:

A bit of snow fell during the trip, but no doubt that spring is in the air.
We may catch some air temp in the 60's if there is a Wednesday trip.
