Completely different take on the city yesterday. Out on an Awayday with the team at work, we chartered a three-masted sailing boat (the Red Witch) and headed out onto Lake Michigan for a couple of hours.
I can’t believe – having now been here for nearly two years – that this was my first time on the lake. I’ve been in it of course: the swimming’s brilliant … and there’s something delicious about diving into a freshwater wave. But not actually on it. Anyhoo: the Awayday – in theory at least – was all about different perspectives, communication and teamwork (see me & Anna – pictured left – losing our marbles in some plastic piping). But mainly it was just gorgeous: flat calm, and 90F / 32C … <happy sigh> … am now piebald as well, with sunburnt forearms and shins; lily-white everywhere else … most attractive.
