I'll describe where it is like a true Michigan-der:

holdbup left hand, looking at the back of the hand. Crystal lake is on the outside of the top pinky knuckle

And I am from Michigan and did not even think about doing that. :blush:  We did get some good ski runs in early this morning but the wind and some rain drops are in now. Hope the weather turns for you.

Lots of calm water in the morning this week. I've been skiing every day so far.

Pics to prove it. Not my best cut but I'm getting old. The second is the part of the family that went with me to drive and spot.

Nice little  town, lake Michigan beach, siren hall to eat, or riverwalk if you have the boat.   Couple antique shops.. not much more.

That wake is FLAT back there where you just crossed it!  What speed is the boat doing on this run?  Are you on a full length line?

Thanks.
