Manistique’s warmer weather brought robins in January, budding trees in February and kayakers in March. These brave women took advantage of the “Early ice out” on Indian Lake Saturday, March 31 and were proud to be the first kayakers on Indian Lake in 2012. From left to right are Sara Blanchard of Wixom, Mich., JoNell Rubick and Judy Provo, both of Manistique. 43p1_0.jpg
