“Spend as much time as possible on mountains, in small boats, or otherwise out in the weather; if you never get wet, cold, exhausted or scared, you won’t properly appreciate being dry, warm, rested and safe.” ~ Peter Jay

Return of the La Framboise Island Circumnavigation Cruise

Last Monday, September 26, Chuck and I put in near the American Legion cabin and paddled to the causeway. We then portaged over the causeway and relaunched from the boat ramp. We paddled upstream, around Discovery Island, and then began our downstream excursion.
We had to stay out in the main channel to keep from being pulled through the breach in the causeway.
We took a short side trip to check out the Bad River boat ramp.

We continued on and paddled through the chute/channel alongside La Framboise Island. The sun was setting as we came around the end of the island for the final stretch. If memory serves me correctly, we covered 6+ miles on the day.
