Dive! Dive!

I walked down to the lake today just to poke around. It was overcast but I am trying to intentionally take as much time at Lake Michigan as I can because I will be gone from Seminary and not have a major lake at my disposal anymore.

I was sitting on one of the rocks and watching the Lake. A goodly ways out, up pops what appears to be a stick. I didn't think much about it until it started rotating around. What is that thing?

It went back under the water, so I assumed it was some sort of bird or something. About three minutes later, there was a whoosh of water and up comes an entire submarine conning tower! A little satellite dish pops up from the conning tower and oscillates around. I guess it linked up to the satellite and sent its message, at which point it went back down into the conning tower, and the submarine submerged.

I thought that was incredibly odd. I am guessing it was the training sub from the naval training base up the coast. If it wasn't that, the Canadians are spying on us again.

A Sub in Lake Michigan??!!!??? I don't think so, Archer. Have you been smoking the food from the refectory again? Sniffing Derrick's hairspray? Hmmmm??? Maybe you saw a lost Loch Ness Monster? Or maybe someone's Black Lab was chasing a stick? But a sub? The only subs around here come from Jimmy John's! :-)

Hey, Matthew saw it too! I have a witness!

That is the WEIRDEST thing I ever heard. But cool. Hopefully, it's not Al Queda.
