First Apostle Weekend
Ron Steinwall and I headed up to the Apostles early Friday. We were the second permit issued for the Apostles, the first was for a mainland camper, we were the first kayaker's issued a permit for the islands for the season. Water temp was a brisk 36 F, so as long as we kept out of the wind and waves, we were able to keep fingers warm. The plan was Oak Island Friday night, then Devils for Saturday night, but with thunderstorms around for much of Saturday, and high winds and waves forecast for Sunday morning, we stayed at York Island instead. That made for a nice easy 4 mile paddle back to Little Sand bay in the morning. We still managed to put on about 30 miles over the weekend.
