Happy New Year from Walled Lake. Here are some ice boats.

An ice boat on Walled Lake.
I went for my somewhat weekly walk along Walled Lake this morning, knowing I needed some exercise with the holidays. I was surprised to see what looked like sail boats out on the lake as I approached it.

While walking along East Lake Road in Novi, I watched as sailors (?) drove their vehicles across the frozen lake, around checkpoints and others walking out on the ice. About two dozen of them were out maneuvering on Walled Lake today in a sport I admit I have never seen before. More information on ice boating can be found here at

So I ran back home, grabbed the camera and shot some photos to share on this first day of 2017:
