Serpent Harbour June 23 2018

Four eager paddlers ignored the grey skies and a few threatening raindrops to explore the Serpent River mouth as it empties into Lake Huron. The rain never really materialized and we were rewarded with calm waters, beautiful scenery, great conversation, and, eventually, blue skies and sunshine. The water level is even higher in Huron this year so the end of Long Point has no easy access... and the fun little zigzag between rocky islands is only a challenge for those approaching with speed and looking to practice turns on a dime.  We did manage to find a perfect lunch spot looking out over the islands scattered in the river mouth...but the sunken ship eluded us again this time!
