St. Patty's Day

Today I paddled with LPBC (Lincoln Park Boat Club) down to the Michigan Avenue Bridge to watch them dying the CHicago River Green. After putting on layers and layers of hear we headed out. The weather was great and there wasn't too much wind.

Lower Wacker Dirve and the bridges were lined with people.
We had to wait about 25 minutes for the boats to drop the Dye. It looked red but turned the river bright green. It was windy and you could taste the dye in the air. Due to wind they ran short of the dye and had to "run out" for some more.

It was a great day and we had tremendous turn out.

Luck O' the Irish to you
