You know how using a 35mm camera is a beautiful almost-lost art form these days? After sailing around Lake Michigan last Friday, it made me think that sailing is the 35mm of boat rides.
Sailing, in its most primitive form, has been around since around 5000 BCE. It provided a wealth of food and closed large distances in a earth shrinking way. Now, it mainly serves as pastime.
It’s so interesting how once revolutionary technologies transition into a cool hobby. I’ll tell you what though, it sure is beautiful to be out there in the water and feel the wind swell (especially with a beer in hand).
Nothing like using a digital camera on the 35mm of boat rides.
Take a look at my favorite Nike flip flops– great for summer things!
Keep your eye on groupon deals for sailing charters in Chicago.

The pictures are beautiful! I envy you! 🙂
Thank you so much!!
I think we need to stay in touch with doing things the old, slow way. I haven’t been on a sailboat for years, but I’d always rather take a train than a plane. A plane just picks you up from one place and puts you down in another. A train may take a lot longer, but you can see the landscape rolling past. You may lose some time, but you gain the experience.
There is something important in not forgetting. I’m with you!! Thanks so much for sharing–love hearing your thoughts.
The pictures are beautiful, just like sailing itself. Thank you for sharing.
Forgot to comment earlier, I wanted to ask which one of you was Captain Morgan? 🙂
hahaa! none of us were! A really cool man that worked with the sailing charter was our captain for the evening.
