Chicago Boat Show
The Chicago Boat Show at McCormick Place is becoming an annual tradition for us, and something we really look forward to as winter begins to drag on. These are our friends Bill & Mina on a decked out pontoon boat that I think they should buy as use as the party boat at Boaters Beach! We enjoyed the boat show even more than usual this year... because we're not actually looking for a boat this time, and could just hang out, drink beer, and browse around for ideas to add to our Seapickle II.
We were also able to meet up with some boating friends - Joe & Miranda and Joe & Pat - and start to make plans for summer get-togethers. I think we're looking forward to this summer more than any summer ever before, if that's possible!! We had such a great time with our cruiser last year, and this year we hope to make it even better! Just a few more months :-)

Hi Ben & Dana!ReplyDelete
I'm the art director at Lakeland Boating Magazine in Chicago, and just did a quick search for the Chicago Boat Show photos to put in our calendar section, and we'd LOVE to use this photo. Can you email me and let me know ASAP? Thanks so much! —Christy
