Well there aren’t any bays here in the Midwest, but there are LAKES. Lots and lots of lakes and rivers and I seem to be learning quite a few of them since Wes has become an avid kayaker. One of our favorite places is Tuttle Creek Lake, just outside of Manhattan, Kansas. I’ve only been a few times, but often when we’re staying with my in-laws Wes will steal away in the wee hours of the morning and go for a peaceful paddle. He returns with stories of watching deer come down to the lake to take a morning drink, or eagles nesting high in the tree tops.
