We got our boats in the water about 10 a.m. and were on the water until 1:30. We saw hundreds of birds but very few people -- just two boats of folks fishing and a few others fishing from the shore.
Mittry Lake is only 6 miles from our campsite at the Yuma Proving Ground, but the road is a little rough so it took us about 20 minutes to get there. It was a gorgeous day to kayak -- maybe 75 degrees with a slight breeze. Not so for the entire country, however: When we got back, Jim was watching TV and noticed that it looked like all of Ohio was under tornado watches and warnings. So I called my Mom who said it had been nice all day but "now that I look out my window is does look like the wind is picking up." Hope all is well back there, Mom.
