Grand Marais Paddleboarder

A stand-up paddleboarder paddles across the Grand Marais, Minnesota harbor entrance in front of some beautiful summer sunset clouds.  I noticed he was not wearing a life jacket or any kind of wet or dry suit... definitely NOT recommended on Lake Superior!  The water is very cold; I guess he figured he wasn't very far from shore so he could have made it back to shore rather easily before hypothermia set in if he had fallen off.  Perhaps the little bundle on the front of the board is a life jacket?  That's better than nothing, I guess, but the life jacket isn't much good if you're not wearing it.
