It certainly is not all about kayaking, canoeing, tubing or stand up paddle boarding at the River in Glen Arbor, Traverse City and Interlochen. We have access or can make available so many other activities like: Sailing. Longboarding. Skimboarding. Biking. Kite Boarding. Snowshoeing. Rafting. Tennis. Hiking. Scuba Diving. Snorkeling. Fishing. Water Skiing. Manitou Island Trips. Camping. Birding. Photography. Juggling. Tree climbing. Geocaching. And, most of these activities we can also provide a guide or an instructor. But at the very least, we can either handle it at one of our outfitters/liveries or connect you with the folks that can make it happen. We are born and raised in Northern Michigan and can help plan just about any activity you can think of.
Stat: The average American spends less that 10 minutes a day outdoors.
Photo on right is of daughter Maggie and little Finn racing in the Butterfly Nationals on Crystal Lake this weekend. Amazing how if presented properly kids can fall instantly in love with a sport. Especially a sport like sailing that is so solitary. Kids these days are so brow beaten with action that a walk in the woods or a light wind sail can seem boring. But are they noticing the bald eagle overhead, or the newborn fawn laying in the lilac bush, or the smell of the conifers, or the distant loon call or colors of the light coming off the water? Kids need to get outdoors and many times they need to be coached on how to enjoy it. Awareness. Appreciation. Patience. Inquisitiveness. Wonder. Can I get away with Love? Indeed, every lesson we need to learn as humans can be found in the Great Outdoors. So, today, get you and/or your kids outdoors and make some memories…….
