Every summer when we head to Saugatuck, Michigan for a week of family fun along the shores of Lake Michigan, I lament not having a nautical background. All that water begs exploration, be it fishing, sailing, cruising or a day simply parked on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan soaking up the sun and surf with the grandkids.
There’s a harbor in this small, artsy town that connects the Kalamazoo River to Lake Michigan. If the names on the boats docked there are any indication, boaters are an artsy bunch, too, with a charming sense of humor.
Rather than recite a roster of resourceful and irrefutably clever expressions for these nautical nuggets of whimsy, I offer my Fun Fotos (with remarks; I couldn't resist a bit of nautical whimsy myself).
