Saturday 3 p.m. ~ At the Helm


Minutes after I snapped this photo with my cell phone, I took the helm and played captain for the next two hours. We made it out as far as the Wilson Avenue water pumping station, with a fair amount of zig-zagging in between. The pumping stations (or cribs) pump lake water back to shore, where it’s filtered and treated for drinking water. It’s always tempting to pull up alongside the station, hop off, and explore.
