We've discovered a special sports event especially for disabled people. Visit Fishability Sports at:
www.fishabilitysports.org . This sounds like a fun day-trip within driving distance from us.
We took a Stony Lake Cruise – very enjoyable, with beautiful nature and lovely music. It is accessible on the bottom level, but the washroom is inaccessible for wheelchairs. If you can manage it, it's worth it!
