Solo bote-ing

This beautiful young girl piloted a motor bote out to the island and around it and back on a solo trip. Most of us didn’t expect her to go BEHIND the island and when the moms on the beach (her mom and me) realized that she did that, I demanded that the GG take a kayak out just in case. I would have preferred a motor rescue bote but we pulled that bote out of the water earlier today.

We were all a bit nervous but as it turned out she was fine and when she got close to shore she even veered off a bit to wave to her grandparents (my cousins) down the beach.

We sat down on the bank forever tonight talking to relatives on both sides. We don’t wanna leave tomorrow but (alas) we have to.

    Nice silhouette of an afternoon boat adventure pic.

    Gitche Gumee will miss you… Our relatives left today also. We all had a really fun time, though way too brief.

    Love this photo! I’m sure she enjoyed her adventure very much, although kids(?) and water always make me a bit nervous.
