Getting on the water:
This was my first paddle on Peltier. It was a beautiful Saturday, so my wife Bridget and I found a sitter for our almost 2-year old and decided to venture off to a new lake. Peltier lake in is part of the chain of Lakes and we definitely did not get to explore all of it.
We launched from the public access located in the south western part of the lake. It was nice and sandy, a solid dock to use. Being a sunny Saturday in June, there was probably more traffic then normal. The public access point was pretty congested and it doesn't have much room if a boat is being loaded.
On the water:
Any day on the water is a good day, but the wind definitely made it a challenge. The paddle out was a breeze (pun intended), as we had the wind at our backs. We picked up a pretty good pace and made it a good distance around the lake. The paddle back was a bit more challenging, which provided an excellent workout as we had to "fight" the waves.
Bridget took to her knees for a bit, and then we hugged the shore pretty close to claim the calm waters. Overall, we spent about 1.5 hours on the water and really enjoyed it!
