Lola, Peggy, Captain Curtis, Russell & Drake © kjm
I had an early start this morning, setting up in wait for the arrival of the SS Badger, the ferry which travels between Manitowoc, Wisconsin and Ludington, Michigan. I've been a passenger on the ferry a fair amount of times and have always enjoyed the experience. But I've never taken the overnight trip, as did 6 year-old Lola and her mom, Peggy, who carried with them their own pillows. Captain Jeffery Curtis had piloted the boat into the harbor, and he came down afterwards to be photographed. Waiting to board for the trip back to Wisconsin was Russell, who rides a Harley complete with a customized trailer for this golden retriever, Drake. The two had just been to Maine and were returning to their home in Neenah, Wisconsin.
