Moose River to Agnes
We woke up around 2AM and left the Paddle Inn to stop at Holiday to grab a quick breakfast and coffee. We arrived at the Moose River entry around 4AM and started portaging in the dark. We finally started paddling around 5:30 AM. The wind was light and the temperature was just right.
We stopped at the "Top of the World" cliff and made the climb up. It was well worth the time and effort to climb.
We climbed down and pressed onward only to be greeted by wind and whitecaps on Nina-Moose Lake. Luckily the wind was from the south and pushed us across the lake. The trip went pretty well until we hit Lake Agnes. The whitecaps were once again bad. Rob and Ryan had no trouble paddling their canoe and staying on course while Jen and I fought the waves and had a tough time keeping the Old Town on course. We decided at that point that Lake Agnes would have to do for the night. We stopped at the same place Rob and I had camped at last year.
The wind finally calmed down late that afternoon. We had a nice fire going and put the Rib Eyes on the grill. I forgot tongs so I had to use a fork to turn the steaks and a few dropped off into the fire. Was not what I had hoped for for a good first night's meal. Poor Jen had half cooked burgers. I had to break out the frying pan to cook them for her liking. We cleaned up and the kids went out and fished the bay we were on. Jen caught a small sunny. Rob had a small Walleye that got away. We drank some hot chocolate and then went to bed.
