Out on the water

Getting outside can be simple sometimes. Sometimes simple is best.

People out on the Water

Family and friends. Local water. Simple. Good for your head. Keeps you clean inside and out.

Me and our new paddle tester, Sula. Much loved Banjo left the planet November 2018. Sula arrived on the scene spring 2019, just in time to grow a bit and get big enough for her first river trip.

Sula and another sandbar walker, out walking the edges, looking for cool stuff along the strandline. Ferry Bluff is in the background.

Labor Day 2019 river trip picture

The ever scenic Ferry Bluff, an amazing part of the Wisconsin River landscape. Both paddles and supCAT are handbuilt. We also paddled a Wenonah canoe. The Lower Wisconsin River is a great place!

Before 'selfies' and kids having their own phones, a real camera was used to take people pictures.

They're all grown up now. Then they all fit in one canoe, now they're a bit bigger and older and each are good enough to helm their own craft....

another custom Eye Candy paddle

Lost the glasses and (sadly) the dog, but I still have the shirt, the SUP, and even the paddle, which was one of my first.

I think this is Labor Day from back in the day. Cox Lake in Governor Dodge State Park, if memory serves. Really impressive terrain. All sorts of narrow coulees, steep little hills and valleys - a really interesting part of Wisconsin. Paddling was nice too!

picture of a small dog wearing a doggie pfd

The aging matriarch of the family. As our kids have grown she has aged from a puppy into a lovable old fluff ball, one who takes great offense at being made to look silly for the camera. I think she was mad at me for this whole day for making her model a doggy pfd.
