Both of us were *slightly* enamored with all the ropes, as some of the pictures will testify. :-)
Some of the ships were available for "sail-aways," or little mini trips out on the lake. We didn't go on those (had to pay more money :-), but it looks like it would have been crowded anyway!
The beautiful blue of the lake
This is one of my favorite pictures of the day... not sure why. Maybe it's the colors in the background, behind the weathered rope and wood.
After we saw all the ships and took far too many pictures, we decided to ride the ferris wheel, which was a lot of fun. I haven't ridden one since I was little. We got some pictures of the Chicago skyline.
