An Eventful Sunday

First of all, the 23rd marked our 40th anniversary! We celebrated by taking the Mara Beel out on Green Bay for an afternoon cruise, followed by dinner at John Martin's.

The day brought other excitement, in the form of a motor home that was smashed on the Michigan Street bridge near our boat. It was quite a spectacle! Ignoring alarms and red lights on a draw bridge is never a good idea. Those counter weights are heavy, and crunch vehicles quite easily.

When we walked back to our boat after dinner, we found a Coast Guard vessel tied up next to us, with five very pleasant men aboard. Of course Mark was there like a shot, and was rewarded with a special tour of their boat! He was impressed by the twin 800 MTU engines.

And finally, the catch of the day:
