These pictures are blog worthiness as taken from Todd's camera. They are in no particular order and I don't think they need a caption. Sometimes we forget to soak up a picture for all it is worth.

When we got up I was disappointed that the aurora borealis never came. I have always wanted to see it, guess I'll just keep looking at the night sky. Blake Lake looked like a sheet of glass when we got up. What a sight it is to see.
|Let's go fish!!! Love watching the sunrise especially in|
|We caught some bigger then this, the bigger|
fish loved them!
|Still had a great morning!|
|The wind is starting to blow and the white caps are starting.|
|Too bad it wasn't bass season Toddy.|
My favorite pictures of the trip will be coming!!

|Zebra Mussel--make sure you wash your boat/kayak to|
|This is the clearest I have ever seen the lake|
Todd and I kayaked over to Bull Head Island "Paradise" which is only about a .25 paddle (one way) we ended up taking two trips due to our gear and food. After we made our second trip back we got everything ready we needed to survive for the next three days since we don't have electricity. Then we started to do what we love the most...fish...
|Todd got right down to fishing and.....|
|It paid off!!! A Bow fin!! It is a "little guy"|
|I came right in the game with a Large Mouth Bass,|
it isn't bass season so threw the fishy back
|We went through the back bay and I was paving the way!|
If you look the lily pad flowers were up 2 more inches then
the water, that's how quick it dropped from the day before.
|Reeled in a Northern Pike in the kayak, you can see his|
nose lost in the weeds
|Northern Pike--22 inches|
|Can't complain about my backyard up here!|
|Trying to catch that fish that kept jumping!!! Nice and calm|
|Wind started to pick up|
|Clouds started to move in (the back of the cabin)|
But, in the end the first day was a success!
