A Great Day for Sailing

Life has been busy lately, getting our daughter off to college, but we were lucky enough to get some free tickets to watch the Chicago Air and Water Show from aboard the schooner Windy. Fortunately, we didn't have to hoist sail or swab the decks...
The Blue Angels... they zoomed by so fast, we barely got this photo!
Chicago skyline and Navy Pier from Lake Michigan. Chicago really does have a beautiful lakefront. About a decade ago, Navy Pier was rescued from oblivion and turned into a huge tourist attraction, with restaurants, carnival rides, theaters, museums, lakefront cruises...a fun place to visit. There was a lull in the action when this photo was taken, but the lake was packed with sailboats, motorboats, ski doos, everything that day - almost like rush hour on the lake!
