 Saturday night was very calm, the water was just like a mirror. Dee & Johnny are sitting on deck & sharing life stories. I'm out on the dinghy & capturing the moment & Chicago is beautiful!

Air Water Show

Last weekend was the Air water show in Chicago. Air Water show is one of the big event in the City. For the last 7 years, I have been going out and anchoring by North Ave beach to watch the show. There are more than 1000 boats anchored to watch the show. Last Sunday, Dee, Johnny, Kelly & her friend, & I went out and we had a great time. It was a windy and choppy day on the lake and that made Kelly friend to feel seasick. I feel sorry for people that have motion sickness. We were lucky to spot uncle Marty on his boat and he had someone sick on Joi De Vie and they were going back to shore. So Kelly's friend made a decision to go back with Marty to shore.

First Day

Today is the first day of blogging! I'm excited that I finally started this blog. I hope I can share many experiences and thoughts with all readers. Right now I guess there are no readers! :-) This voyage will start in September 2010. I'm planning to leave Chicago by water through rivers down to the Gulf of Mexico. The estimated time for this passage is 3 to 4 weeks.
A map of the river trip will be attached soon!
