A few months ago Kati called me asking that if she booked a sea plane to fly around the Keweenaw Peninsula would I like to go?
Well you don’t have to ask my twice!
She surprised Adam with it and I am so grateful I got to join!
It was an experience that left me speechless and giddy!
So much beauty up here in Copper Country!
Royale Air Service, Inc. operates right out of Ripley and is located just across the Portage Canal from where I’m camping.
Ken was our pilot and he was so awesome and knowledgeable! He used to fly his sea plane up in Alaska in and around all the remote villages! So cool!
The only thing I found so disappointing was that the canal was all brown from the flood. Normally it is a beautiful shade of blue! It was a constant reminder of the turmoil the area experienced a week earlier. In some of the pictures you can see the murky, muddy water mixing with the beautiful Lake Superior!
It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I definitely recommend taking a Sea Plane tour whenever you get a chance! The take off and landing were so smooth we had him do it twice! Once at the end and once halfway through in the middle of Portage Lake!!
Amazing way to spend a Saturday morning!
#39 – Kati for booking this incredible ride!
#40 – All my friends and family for all the awesome calls, texts and messages I got yesterday! Thanks for making me feel special on my special day.
#41 – Brodie. Our latest foster dog got dropped off for transport today. The experience with him was a whirlwind and you will learn all about it on Foster Friday this week! I learned so much from this little guy. One of the most rewarding experiences ever.
#42 – Taylor for taking amazing care of Brodie for the past few weeks well I have been gone. You are the absolute best and went above and beyond for this guy. I’m so proud of you for doing something you didn’t want to do. I know you found it just as rewarding as I did.
#43 – Thanks to Ken, our pilot for make the ride so special and feel so personalized!
