Great all around weekend end for paddling and knocking about the local paddle shop.
Saturday found Laura and I hanging around the Paddlin Shop with John, Carl and Chris. We killed the better part of the morning there. We ended up at this quaint little bistro enjoying a great lunch and sharing a bottle of wine.
Checked the MadCity Paddler's website for any last minute changes or additions to the schedule. My plan was to paddle on the Wisconsin and meet up with a group from the club coming down on an overnighter on Sunday. But a last minute post on the message board had a hand full of club members heading south to the Wisconsin Illinois border to paddle Turtle Creek with the Prairie Paddles out of Northern Illinois.

Our paddle down Turtle Creek had a much warmer feel. But it will give you an idea of what Turtle Creek has to offer.
Great daze... I have to be where on Monday? Work? What? The Capt'n
