Started to pull things together at Granny and Papa's as we wanted to leave after lunch. We had packed up the kayaks the night before so that was one less headache, but we were somewhat reluctant to leave as it was such a nice get together. We decided to stick to the Michigan coastline on our way up to the Upper Peninsula. It started pouring when we were on the Mackinac Bridge, but the view of the storm moving over the bridge was deeply engrossing. We found Soldier Lake after only 1 recalculation and were amazed at how nice it was. It was also very wet as most of our trip had been done in rain. We got set up and decided to unload the tandem. We dragged it all the way from NY, and we were determined to use it at every opportunity. The site was right on the lake, and there was a easy path down to the water, so it was go time!! The dogs got loaded up and we took a relaxing ride around the lake. The lake was relatively small, clear and the bottom was not disgusting, so a big win for put in and pull out. The area was full of pines, cedar, maples, birch and smelled delightful after the rain. We were excited to use the kayaks after towing them all through Ohio. All in all, a nice ending to a relatively sad day saying goodbye to family.
