Too bad the weather and food look so lousy too.
We've had some pretty beautiful blue skies here - but not those cheerfully painted boats on azure waters. Islands Lake is kind of the same.
It would have been much nicer if we could have paddled a canoe while chatting with friends. Island Lake is just fine. :)
Oh yeah, it's pretty gruelling.
Be fun to come back off-season and hike /paddle.
Nice celebratory touring to finish off a great trip!
