Though I'm often paddling among familiar places, I keep finding islands I haven't been to yet. This morning I paddled off toward Spruce and decided to take the extra detour around No Man's Island. Because of the birds that nest on the island, it is off limits to humans until the end of August, so I only saw it from the water.
Only a couple of weeks ago I was amazed at how little recreational boat traffic, especially kayaks, I saw out there. That has changed, but at least the increased traffic creates more photo-ops.
