Coming Home

No matter how long we have been gone, it's always nice to come home. This is Chicago as seen from the Lake. We didn't know it at the time but the Chicago to Macinac Island Sailboat race was just starting as we were coming back, we had lots of traffic to dodge!

Well known to all who sail the Great Lakes, the USCG Ice Breaker Mackinaw, too large to fit through the St. Lawrence Seaway, she's a virtual prisioner of the Lakes. In service since World War 2, she'll soon be retired and replaced. This was the first time I had seen her with her hull painted red, it's always been white. But now she matches the other USCG Ocean Ice Breakers.
