Kayaking in lake Michigan.........
    #2778276 - 06/09/04 05:05 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

is one of my favorite things to do! Every summer, my hippie friend and take a trip out to some islands called North and South Manitou Islands. We arived at our launch point in the middle of the night,  planing to start the ten mile paddle at sunrise.  The night sky was so clear and water was so calm, we decided to leave in the dark!



after paddling for hours we reached Donner Point on the north island, We ate and soon fell asleep!



The next morning was awsome, we had this whole island to ourselves! We explored around untill early after noon and then paddled about 6 miles to the south island.  The south island has a Coast Gard station and back-country camping for hiker's. (You can see the south island in the background)



Now the south island is really kool!  This light house was built in 1871 and was used untill 1958. The light must not of workrd very good cauz there is about fifty know shipwrecks around this little island.



After eating lunch at the light house we paddled around the south island to the one of the many ship wrecks. You and scubadive in all of the wrecks,  but some are only a few feet under so the snorkles worked grate! But the best part is this 1911 shipwreck which is half above the water!





then after exploring that wreck we took a knap on the beach before paddling seven mile's back to shore!
