First Blush: Lake, what lake?

Chicago Yacht Club

From her hotel room on the 43rd floor, the female DJ has two great lake views – looking north at Lake Michigan. Distance wise she’s just a couple of blocks away. All this leading up to the fact that she can hardly see the building next door, and the lake is all but invisible due to heavy – well, as a west coaster would call it – fog. She headed out nevertheless, going south on Swimmers in Lake Michigan, Chicagothe lake path for the first time, past Navy Pier, turning around at the Chicago Yacht Club where preparations were under way for a regatta of some kind. Along the way she snapped two swimmers who’d paused for a chat mid-lake. Note the wetsuits – the water is really cold. Weather wise, the excitement is just beginning; a severe weather alert has been issued with a big thunderstorm headed towards downtown. Not exactly a nice day for a wedding, but there’s hope for the late afternoon…
