Sunrise Kayak on Lake Nokomis

Normally busy with fishing boats and waterskiers, there wasn’t a soul in sight as I glided out onto the glassy water. I was able to paddle around the islands and out into the bay without having to deal with any wake. One of the benefits of getting up early!
It was such a nice, calm morning. I even spotted an eagle as I was paddling back!
I've been checking the weather nearly every day, waiting for the right conditions to head out in the canoe for the first time this year. Yesterday morning was it. Full sun, no wind, ice-free, and...
