    Nice photo of American Steamship "footer". you know which one she is? Our son served on one while he was a Midshipman at Kings Point during his sea year. He got his Mom and I onboard one night in Conneaut while unloading. He and I did the Cuyahoga shuttle run up the Cuyahoga one summer evening years ago while he was in high school. 7 hours to go 2.2 miles to the steel mill. Crazy cool. My personal favorite is the Great Republic, formerly American republic. She could squeeze up the river smooth as silk.

    Lake Michigan on Saturday at Saugatuck Dunes State Park. The water is so high along the coast that there is not much beach front available this year.

    As an avid Search and Recovery diver, this looks interesting. How's the diving on the Lakes? I've yet to visit.

I took a day off of work and rode up here before my weekend started. I had never seen the Great Lakes and it was beautiful. The water was cold and the pebbles felt a lot different than the red dirt and sand we have way down south. It was a long ride. But it was worth it.

    The Great Lakes are Great for diving.

    Lake Superior, Michigan and Huron are much better than the rest. They are very clear but cold. Lake Erie and Ontario are warmer but not the greatest visibility.
    I will try to post some more info on diving but I don't have it right now. There are some great dive locations and dive charters in the Great Lakes. Great ship wreck dives.

    I am a Public Safety Diver for the Fire Department. Most of my diving has been around the Sandusky Ohio (Lake Erie and the Sandusky Bay) area. I really want to dive up North in Lake Michigan, Huron and / Superior one of these days.

    Here are a couple links to get you started and to give you a small glimpse of whats up here.
