journey to the island

_DSC1772.jpgSetting off around 05:20 we quickly see that nobody else is on the road.. A good thing for anyone on a road trip. Leaving Chicago is always amazing in the morning, you see the sun slowly coming up over the lake as the car creeps away from the urban into the rural.

After my recent train ride through the country I was not looking forward to seeing endless corn and farms. Though uninteresting after about fifteen years of seeing it I was excited to see the fog in the fields as I had seen in Nebraska.

Roughly six hours and hundreds of acres of farmland later we were waiting for a ferry to kelleys island. The wait for the ferry is always an interesting thing, it always feels the same.
