Kayaking in Southeast Minnesota

There are so many great ways to get out and enjoy the beauty all around us.  Bob and I got out for a paddle on Lake Winona this afternoon.

This was a monumental paddle for me.  Two months ago, I broke my elbow in a biking accident when Bob and I were biking to Fountain City. (More about that another time.)  Today, we were paddling a short, easy one on the lake to see if I could join him for the Mike Munson & Ben Weaver Concert on a sand bar later in the afternoon.

Here are a few of the beautiful plants on or near the water.

These look like a hibiscus.  They have a soft fragrance. And cat tails

These pretties may be swamp milkweek.

This little orchid type plant grows near the shore of the lake.

A little bud

Yellow water lilies

Oh, the water and paddling were lovely.  No sand bar concert for me today.  Another day soon.  More strength and healing on deck.
