Kayaks and Flames.

We got out early one morning and joined a kayaking group in the cold, but beautiful waters of Lake Michigan. The weather continued to be spectacular. Our group hugged the coast exploring caves and occasionally getting our breath taken away by plunging into the lake.

Scandinavian immigrants brought this tradition to Door County. It is a great way to feed a lot of hungry people. Fish, potatoes, and onions are all boiled together. After about 30 minutes, a thick film coats the top of the water. To get rid of the film, but keep the water hot for the next boil, kerosene is thrown on the flames. The water boils over the pot keeping the remaining water hot and ready to cook the next batch rapidly.Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 1.05.59 PMScreen Shot 2016-08-29 at 1.06.10 PMAfter returning from Wisconsin, I found out that Anchorage has its own fish boil.
