    Lake Michigan Yesterday

    Spectacular day on Lake Mi yesterday (launched out of Diversey Harbor).

    Nothing like the big pond

    I love Lake Michigan. Its my favorite place to ride. Very clean and clear. Just cold sometimes. Thats about as flat as you will ever see it too.

    Thats because Chicago sends all of their poop there instead of into Lake Michigan

    Yup, we have been out on days with both the boat and the ski when it was, let's just say a little more interesting.

    It amazes me what people take out on the lake We have been down there on days when the winds were kicking up and the lake was crazy. You see them out there on little 16 foot fishing boats and bowriders packed full of kids. Nuts.

    I used to love it when the wind would kick out of the north..thats when the big waves come in...Early morning is best for flat water out there..at least down by Hammond IN it is...

    Diversey (my fav) or 31st Street (new harbor but only 10 or so parking spots). Not sure of others, I know you cannot go out of Burnham.
