There is nothing finer than a Lake Superior sunset.
There is nothing finer than paddling a canoe with my life partner, as we've done across boundary lakes and wilderness desert rivers. Our first big date was a 10-day trip across the Quetico and our one big wedding present was a 17-foot Old Town Penobscot canoe.
Plus, the sunset gets a little finer when it's got a sun dog glowing rainbow colors off to the side.
And it's mighty fine to have all this in our backyard. Instead of reading the latest Time magazine last night, I went out for a paddle with Sally.
So here's the truth: There is nothing finer than a Lake Superior sunset and sundog viewed with my wife from our canoe just out our back door.
Except maybe that kiss on the beach afterwards.
