I think we are ready to cross Lake Michigan-- as long as the favorable weather forecast is still good in the morning! It will either be scary, unpleasant, or boring, depending on the wind and waves. We are hoping for boring!

We cruised across the Bay to buy diesel this afternoon. I backed the Mara Beel out of her slip, scared out of my mind. Mark pulled up to the fuel dock and then drove back into our slip in strong winds. Glad that our friends were on hand to catch our lines.



And finally- one last Sturgeon from Sturgeon Bay:
