Lake Michigan is one of nature’s greatest air conditioners. So when the sidewalk shimmers with heat, we need to get on the water. A tour on the Wendella, a catamaran rental up in Wilmette, or if you’re lucky an invitation to take a boat ride with a friend. The best thing about being on a boat in the summertime is you can always jump off. Come sail away.
The Waterboys-This Is The Sea. A perfect introduction to our voyage.
Lyle Lovett-If I Had A Boat. Simply one of the greatest songs ever written, but I can’t recommend bringing your pony on board.
Randy Newman-Sail Away. Randy’s classic take on a slave persuading Africans to follow him to America.
Mazzy Star-I’m Sailin. Oh, Hope. Even your blues are dreamy.
Loggins and Messina-Vahevala. The captains of yacht rock.
World Party-Ship of Fools. With yours truly at the helm, it would be.
