Start: 6:15 AM - Lakeport, MI (Lakeport State Park)
Finish: 1:00 PM - Forester, MI (Forester County Park)
Time: 6:45 hours
Daily dist: 24 miles
Total dist: 4200+
Weather: Mostly cloudy with highs in the 80’s almost no wind until I was off the water.
Notes: One of the most placid days of paddling so far. Meeting Deborah at camp.
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday in six hours of paddling I went only 15 miles before calling it a day because it just wasn’t worth working so hard to gain a few miles. Today I enjoyed some of the most placid paddling I’ve had in the entire trip and in only a bit more time than yesterday I went 9 miles further and with much less effort.. The going was so good, in fact, that I could have stayed on the water all day.
