Two For Tuesday

Normally after work I either go for a run, kayak, or, on occasion, take my mnt. bike onto La Framboise Island. This past Tuesday I chose to try to do two of the three: run and kayak. I drove down and parked in the park (just above the causeway in the map). After my run, between 2.5 and 3 miles, I decided to put in near the American Legion Cabin for a short paddle.
From the map, you can tell I turned around just past the marina (Down's Marina). The trip was 2.7 miles. On returning to the gravel beach by the American Legion, I felt the need to take a picture of the flag showing the wind.
That is not an ordinary site in SD!
