Murphy Dome Diaries

A journalist observes life in the far north.

Lake Michigan

My father belongs to the South Milwaukee Yacht Club. I know. It sounds hoity-toity. Really it’s middle class and family oriented. Men drink beer and wear T-shirts and jeans. Woman are in shorts and pony tails. Boys looking like hoodlums fish off of the pier. I like it because the bathrooms are cleaner than in my home. Anyway, it’s a place to park his boat, a 26-foot cabin cruiser that we took out on Lake Michigan today, touring downtown Milwaukee by way of the Milwaukee River. It was definitely a highlight of my vacation, which ends Wednesday.

Downtown Milwaukee.

Fancy condos along the river.


A riverfront eatery.

River art.

See the orange palm tree on the balcony.
