We Made It!

We cruised across lake Michigan today, from Sturgeon Bay, WI, to Frankfort, MI. 60 miles, almost 7 hours, and 1 time zone. The weather conditions could not have been more ideal! It was incredibly beautiful all the way across! We had been dreading this crossing for months, but we were blessed with calm seas- waves less than 1 foot.That was an answer to prayer. We left Sturgeon Bay at 0-dark-30. The sunrise was spectacular.

Wait- what's that saying about "red sky in morning, sailor take warning?" Should we be worried?

The sunglasses are hiding the fact that Becky is sound asleep at the helm. No worries.

Love those sparkles!

Smooth sailing

We tied up at the Frankfort Municipal Marina and immediately met new friends and fellow Loopers Wayne and Rhonda on Help Me, Rhonda-  docked next to us. 

We went for a walk around town and the beach. So pretty.

Better than Florida- at least in the summer!

Guess these funny fish on a stick followed us across the Lake- or we followed them.
We ended the evening having dessert with Rhonda and Wayne, and touring each other's boats. More adventures tomorrow!
