Ocean Paddler Magazine Visits Lake Superior

Thursday, 27 February 2014

I was really excited to get an email late yesterday from Richard Parkin, the editor of Ocean Paddler Magazine announcing that the latest issue is hot off the press and available for download (print copies were going out in a day or so).

I have been waiting for this one as I had a feature article on kayaking around Michipicoten Island on Lake Superior. Since nobody except my mother would be ever interested in reading a pure trip diary type article I decided to talk more about the history of the island and why I think it’s one of the best places to paddle on Lake Superior. I wrote from the perspective that if somebody from the UK is looking to visit Canada and paddle a challenging route, Michicipicoten Island needs to be on your bucket list.
