Today was the day for the Lake Express to take anyone who had $ 10 across Lake Michigan on a high speed ferry. Lake crossing takes about 90 minutes. Mike went up to Frankfort to relieve our CVB Director from taking money and letting her go on the ride. I was busy with a bunch of golfers at the Wayfarer, trying to get them off to their scheduled game at Arcadia Bluffs
Feast your eyes on the pictures Mike took for me:
Look at all the people waiting to get on the boat!
standing in line…
Ummmm….not for me. I would not feel good on that choppy lake, no matter how large the barge.
Se the double hull? The Captain of the Lake Express, retired Coast Guard, he told Mike that someone in a kayak went between those two hulls while the motor was still running as they arrived here yesterday 😯
Last but not least, a tug boat 🙂
