Sault Ste Marie (almost)

This is another beautiful area that I am just discovering. Anchored here for the night. Great anchorage for the expected northerlies overnight.

I got underway at first light this morning, and had beautiful weather all day. Enjoyed the trip through Whaleback Channel then along the coast to St Joseph Island. The trip up river was more interesting and varied than I was expecting. I’m glad to have this detour.

I traveled all day at about 7 knots.

Tomorrow I’ll visit the Canadian side. Haven’t been around here before. I may leave the mother ship here and dinghy there. There’s wind forecast for the next day or two so I’m not in a panic to get into Lake Michigan. Looks good for early next week. I’ll enter the US and get a cruising permit here as well.

Dawn this morning

In the North Channel

These were taken in the St Mary’s River

The water was about 100 feet deep right next to the cliffs. Pretty country, largely empty.
