Since the wind is light and the forecast is for windy conditions later in the week, we decided to go the
60 miles across Lake Michigan to Chicago.

Our ride across the lake was comfortable and uneventful!   uneventful is okay!

Below: a cargo ship, it was huge!


As we got close to Chicago, it was like the skyscrapers suddenly popped through the fog!
It was an awesome sight! 

One of our buddy boats took our picture in front of the Chicago skyline!

We had fun taking each other's pictures!  Here is the skyline and the lighthouse as we came into port.

The friends we met earlier in the week also came to the same marina in Chicago! 
We had dinner together at the Columbia Yacht Club which is located on an old ice breaker. 
The boats present here are:  Catalina, Robins nest, Bird, Ned Pepper, Let's Go and Seaquest.    

We will post more about our stay in Chicago on the next post.  We plan to begin our journey down the river systems
on Tuesday.  

Bon Voyage!     :)
