Almost forgot to mention all the antique boats that will be in the water at Freddie's in Fox Lake this morning until noon. This event used to be held in McHenry by Joey T's on the Fox River, but that place has since burned down.
There will be lots of "woodies" there, what we call the old wooden runabout boats that used to ply the Chain of Lakes. One of those in perfect shape is a sight to behold.
We plan to get an hour of boating in now that the heat wave has broken and stop by Freddies (right off US-12 south of Fox Lake) on our way to McHenry.
Good Times In the Area, Indeed. --RoadDog
