When you come to Saugatuck, take a cruise down the Kalamazoo River

When you get to Saugatuck, if you have a chance take a cruise down the Kalamazoo River either with a friend or on the paddle boat that leaves from the end of Water Street several times a day. 

Sunset cruises are the best.  Down the Kalamazoo at Sunset courtesy of Dee Dee Hanson, CB Woodland Schmidt, Saugatuck, MiEvery sunset is different.  They can be gently pink and blue like this one or more dramatic shades of orange. 

The river is meandering and quite picturesque with boats, boat houses, and resort homes.  Lots to see. 

People are friendly and wave as you pass them.Through the channel of the Kalamazoo courtesy of Dee Dee Hanson, CB Woodland Schmidt 

 Sunset is a very special time of day - when you want to "hold time in a bottle" and just savour the experience. 

Good friends, a bottle and wine and a beautiful sunset - What could be better. 

The trip is slow - no wake zone - and affords plenty of time of reflection.

Allow a couple of hours at least for the experience and let go of everything else - on the water there are no problems, no worries only comraderie and beauty.

DeeDee, I even enjoy the paddle boat from the shore every time I see it. Makes me think about the past when this grand lady carried passengers from an earlier era.

She came and we didn't have the opportunity to take the ride. I promise when she comes back we will be there.
