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.

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.
