Memorial Day Weekend

Crazy days and crazy nights; in a 24 hours span it went from 44 degrees to 88 degrees; fog and no wind to howling; Welcome to Memorial day in Wisconsin. I did how ever get out and paddle and sail all three days, which was very much needed.
Good breeze on Memorial Day and in the 80's made for a splendid sail; got out early before all the crazies got out on the water. Wind was building all day, went from full sail and PAS down to two reefs in the main.
All good things must come to an end or so they say; here is a shot of Rock Lake at Bartel's Beach. Yeah that's me launching in the swim area. Just to the right is a designated canoe launch but the city decided to put picnic tables in front of the launch, so it's terrible for staging the Balogh rig.
Happy Tuesday!! - The Capt'n
