Paddle Around the Puddle

Anyone with a sea kayak, muscles and a free weekend on June 13th and 14th might consider dragging their boat and a sleeping bag down to Burnham Harbor for a two-day trek along Lake Michigan's south shore to Michigan City. The journey offers kayakers a chance to witness nature's beauty juxtaposed with the shore's impressive industrial monoliths.

The trek will stop every five or eight miles at public access points to allow paddlers to join, or leave the group. Kayakers will camp Saturday night at Marquette Park and be treated to food and entertainment. A party awaits those who paddle into Michigan City on Sunday.

What is unclear is how Chicagoans would get back to the city, but there are tips and the event registration here.
