Trip Reports

July 7 Manistee from Sharon to M-66

Lois Goldstein  | Published on 7/7/2015
A few folks cancelled early in the morning, but the eleven folks who showed up had a ball.  Lovely scenery, fast water, nobody else around, cool temps.
Jocelyn (a last minute shuttle person - thanks from everyone)
Glenn (who stood in the water to make sure everyone was well situated in their boats - what a prince)
Dee (another shuttle driver, who made sure to check out both accesses the previous day)
Deena (who knew exactly where the lunch stop was)
George (who managed to keep his feet dry - he will soon be taking lessons from Fred)
Sharon (who negotiated the funky currents like a pro)
Jackie (who was ever ready to take responsibility for Bella's transgressions)
Tracie (who brought out her neoprene boots for a mid-July outing)
Linda (who learned the value of following the cars returning to the takeout)
John (who took up the sweep position, and kept the rest of us in line)
Lois (who wrote this, and managed to demonstrate her exploratory skills)
Photos by John, Glenn and Jocelyn
Bella: "What? Me transgress?"
 Lois, LInda, Jackie, Tracie, John, Sharon and Glenn
 John rarely gets into pictures, 'cause he's usually taking them (notice his nifty set-up on deck)
