Star of Saugatuck

We have visitors from Uruguay this weekend and we wanted to show them some of the natural beauty of Fall in West Michigan. A drive in the country seemed okay but a boat ride sounded like something special.

It turned out that yesterday was the last day of the season for the Star of Saugatuck. We took the 3 pm cruise, a 90 minute round-trip on the Kalamazoo River from Saugatuck to Lake Michigan. The wind from the Lake was brisk, so some took shelter in the enclosed cabin. Others of us bought more chocolate from the boat's snack bar. We all enjoyed seeing the autumn colors from the water. Altogether it made a very pleasant afternoon.
