rafting   in Spring Lake

We used to raft off quite often in Spring Lake. This was a nice option, from the marina we could head out onto Lake Michigan, or follow the river channel to this large inland lake.

It was nice leisurely cruise down the river channel to get to there. We used to raft in a bayou on the lake, usually with several other boats. It was a time for appetizers and friendship.

There was a rope swing somewhere near shore, and we also used to climb up to the hardtop on the boat and jump into the water.
