Beaver Island

Cute place, nice anchorage.

Had a fine trip today. A bit choppy for the first and last couple of hours, but mostly nice. Sunny and warm. Probably the hardest part of the day was heading west into the sun all evening.

I got underway at 9:00 this morning and came in here about 7:00. Anchored and zipped in by dinghy for dinner in a local pub.

Weather looks like more of the same and calm for the next few days. Should be smooth sailing to Chicago. Am heading down the Michigan shore tomorrow.

And the sunset pic. A bit late getting out of the pub 🙂

Forgot to mention bugs. This is the first time in weeks that I’ve had to keep screens closed. Was swarmed at dusk. Also have ducks pecking at the sides of the boat. It took me a while to figure out what the noise was :-). Have gone out a scared them off a couple of times but they keep coming back. Guess I’ll get used to it.
