Yeah we rented the Mini Cabin, but good luck securing one in the warm months! I just happened to get lucky while checking avails... multiple times... and latched onto a cancellation.
Awesome trip with AWESOME people... Amanda, Sean & my Kid Jason!! After spending the weekend in Tawas, on Monday just as the wind seemed it wasn't going to cooperate any further, Sean, Jason & I packed up and started off for home... Amanda, dedicated to the cause as she is, stayed solo to try to lasso in some more! After 10 minutes of driving, as we reached the North side of the bay, we noticed the flags blowing! After a quick stop in a bay front parking lot to confirm wind, we quickly turned the car around and headed back to the point for the most epic day of kiting the whole trip!! Wind direction dictated launching on the lake side of Huron the entire trip... not the bay side for which we really went up for... but it was surprisingly shallow, surprisingly so far out, flat and the water was almost bathwater warm! With the air temps in the upper 50's, we would go into the water to warm up! Someone in the parking lot estimated water temps @ 68Âº! Didn't believe it until I experienced it myself... seeing as how we were looking at Canada as we gazed across the lake, in early June!
