Golden Lake 6.30.2020

Golden Lake proved to be a "golden" paddle this evening.  Although we missed a few regulars, we still had a considerable turnout. I suspect more than one person was just happy to see some other souls after spending too much time sequestered at home. Canoeists increased their representation to 4 on this paddle: Tadd, Steve … Continue reading Golden Lake 6.30.2020

Sylvan Lake 10.1.2019

With daylight hours rapidly receding, it's hard to say how many more lake outings we'll get, but you couldn't have chosen a nicer evening to cap off the season.  Comfortably warm temps, a pretty sky, nice waters, and (later) a beautiful sunset!  Far more special than the paddle conditions were the paddlers present.  It was … Continue reading Sylvan Lake 10.1.2019

Fort Wayne Kayaking: Golden Lake 5.21.19

In spite of cool temps and a brisk wind, we lost less than two paddlers last night, an attrition rate Jay deemed “acceptable”.  Our band of paddlers consisted of a mix of old, new, and “occasional”: Jay, Dan, Steve, Steve, Steve (seems to be a theme here), Mike, and John completed the “regulars” list, while … Continue reading Fort Wayne Kayaking: Golden Lake 5.21.19

Fort Wayne Kayaking: Tri-Lakes 5.14.19

Not long after setting out, fierce winds and waves - driven by a cold, northeastern wind - wreaked havoc up on the band of kayakers.  Fortunately, that wasn't our group; we enjoyed near perfect weather - at least if you prefer benign conditions.  Jeff and I had to pursue a pontoon boat or two just … Continue reading Fort Wayne Kayaking: Tri-Lakes 5.14.19
