After stocking up on groceries, topping off our water tanks, and pumping out the holding tank, we cast off our lines and headed across Green Bay today! It was a gorgeous day to be on the water-sunny and fairly smooth.

Being a river boater, I find it a little disconcerting when I can't see land in front of me. But our chart plotter takes us where we want to go.

We are  now docked in Menominee, Michigan, where we plan to spend a few days. Mark is getting to be such a pro at docking-- a man watching us come in asked if we had both bow and stern thrusters- what a laugh! We don't have any thrusters at all- it's a matter of using the twin engines properly.

Back in Sturgeon Bay, however, I have unfinished business with the Sturgeons around the Bay. Here's the catch of the day:

They just keep coming-- isn't it great? Maybe I can talk Mark into getting one for my birthday when these beauties are auctioned off.
