We are closed for the 2009 paddling season. It is time to take a break and regenerate. Stay tuned for some website changes. Check out the following 2 new pages that Johnse has added. http://www.seagulloutfitters.com/seagull_lake_weather.htm and http://www.seagulloutfitters.com/bwca_family_trips.htm . I am fortunate to have him on staff in the off season assisting with web stuff. He and his wife Lauren recently had a baby boy. Stay tuned for more changes.

We are busy starting the close down process for 2009. Canoes are repaired and stored for winter, motors are checked and ready for 2010, boats are cleaned and turned over, the packing room is put to bed and the inventory begins. Most of our summer staff has left and we are down to 3 staffers, Dave and myself.
Life at Seagull slows down for us all and we are ready for a break. Stay tuned for more Seagull news as September moves along.

Through all the wind and the rain we've been having, smiles are still what we've been seeing when the trips sadly come to an end. The wise teach these young children that a garbage bag is just as beneficial when it comes to the week of rain that they had on their trip.
The adults may be giving the life lessons on these trips, but it looks to me as if the young ones are giving the lessons on how to catch the fish.
Hopefully the weather begins to cooperate for these families so they can enjoy their relaxing time together before the chaos of school begins once again.

As I entered at the Cross Bay entry point, I was greeted by chattering otters that felt threatened that I was a little to close to their home. I made it past the two small portages and was on Ham Lake. I saw where the origin of the '07 fire began. It is amazing to see the two year growth on the trees and to see how resilient the woods really are. I mad my final portage into Cross Bay Lake and took a few photos of wildflowers that are pictured below. I stopped and had lunch at one of the campsites as I took in the view. As I paddled around Cross Bay, I was greeted by a large snapping turtle and a cow moose wadding the shore.
All and all it was a great day to be on the water, and Cross Bay Lake will go down as one of my most favorite, peaceful places to visit.

We will be moving into our new house on Seagull next week and start getting it organized before summer staff start arriving the end of April. It is an exciting time.
With the onset of warmer weather, there has been a boost in phone calls and reservations for this summer.
We have some used Kevlar Canoes for sale for anyone that may be interested. They will all be out of storage by early May.
Seagull Canoe Outfitters is now on facebook. Check us out and start your own discussions there. More to come in the social networking area....we are fortunate to have hired a young man Jake that will be assisting with all this in May.
Watch the ice and snow melt on Seagull via the webcam on the home page. Soon we will be all fishing and paddling!

We have some happy birds at Seagull Outfitters in the winter. Some days we have as many as 100 birds at a time at the feeders. My cat Lucky likes to watch them from the office window. His ears go low and he thinks he is going to pounce on them through the window. He hasn't made it yet as he is an indoor winter cat. He keeps trying though.
Office work is keeping me busy. We are hiring summer staff too and have some great applicants. Reservations are coming in good and we are thankful for that.
Dave and his son Duane will be laying all the flooring in our new house real soon. Dave is getting ready for that as well as installing the new water filtration system.
That is life in the woods today!
