Jenny and I are both from Michigan. We loved it there, but we were never sailors til we moved to Boston and bought Madrigal. Knowing what we do now about sailing, we both think it'd be FANTASTIC to get a chance to sail on the Great Lakes. They are wonderful lakes and we both love them. I've vacationed on their beaches and on fishing charters a number of times, but having never sailed, I didn't know what I was missing... Maybe some day in the future we'll get a chance to head up the St. Lawrence and spend some time on our native waters, but that day is likely a very long ways off.
In the meantime, reminiscing about fresh water adventures of days past led me to look at some old pictures. Shortly after we first met we went on a group camping trip with some friends. We stayed at a beachfront campground in Petoskey, Michigan. What a great place. These pictures are all from that trip. Incidentally, this is really the trip that caused Jenny and I to realize what a strong connection we had to each other.
It was memorial day weekend, so that was some COLD Lake Michigan water that Jenny had ventured into.
We tried to get a photo with our two friends Jason and Katie, but something went terribly wrong with Jason's face.
As you can see, that tends to happen to him...
