In the summer of 2012 my best friend Mary Catterlin and I circumnavigated Lake Michigan in our handmade dugout sailing canoe. After 93 days and 1200 miles, we returned to our home beach of Beverly Shores, IN. This adventure has led to the creation of a self produced documentary and a published illustrated journal.
