Back in the BWCA : Our first adventure
July 19, 2013
Seagull Lake Only
Number of Days:
We did some good family bonding and relaxing for the next two days. It was a bit difficult collecting firewood after the storms, but I was determined to cook all meals over a wood fire. We cooked burgers the first night. Bacon and eggs for breakfast. Brats the next night. Our point site had nice blueberry patches we enjoyed all weekend. Didn't end up fishing much as I wanted too as the wind was up both days. Trying to avoid the wind, we packed up and were on the water by 7 am Sunday morning. I had loaded the canoe much too top heavy and once into the deep water we were very tippy. We stopped at one of the rock islands and reloaded. Much better stability. The waves had us heading in a more S.E direction and we missed the opening to Three mile island. After a couple hour tour of the south end of lake we located the two campsites, reoriented and headed north. Stopped for lunch at the south end of Three mile. Admired the views from the latrine up the hill. The rest of the paddle back to the landing was pleasant and a little sad knowing our first trip was over. As soon as we landed four other canoes converged out of nowhere so we had to rush a bit to load up. It was a great first trip in hind sight, with lots of newbie lessons learned.
