Chicago paddling in August....brrr!

Every city seems to claim the saying, "If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute." Here in Chicago, we can say, "If you like the water temperature, enjoy it while you can!"
Two weeks ago, at the start of the Foundation Safety and Rescue Training class at Geneva Kayak Center Lakefront, the water temperature was a balmy 70 (or thereabouts). This week, it was in the mid-50s.

We've had westerly winds for the past few weeks, and they blew all our warm surface water over to Michigan.


To all our friends in the West Michigan Coastal Kayakers Association: We don't like the water temperature! Send the warm stuff back!

It's just awesome. Chicago is a wonderful city. In Chicago as there are many things to enjoy and fun there are also places to spoil each other.
