The start and end of a near perfect cruising day…

Sunrise at Rogers City, and a near full moon setting at the same time to the west.

Great sea state / weather conditions! We are experimenting with only running at 1400 RPM, +/- 7.0 Knots.

Poe Reef Light – 2 nm SE of Bois Blanc Island.

Approaching Mackinaw City.

4 mile long Mackinac Bridge! We’ll pass beneath it in a few day to enter Lake Michigan, our third and final Great Lake this trip (Erie, Huron, Michigan).

Secured in Mackinaw City MI. Straights State Harbor Marina.

Of course, a “docktails” invite is the perfect finish to a successful cruising day. Several new friends were met tonight, as well as folks we met earlier. I cannot believe we all forgot to take a “team photo!?”

But at least we have some ”Looper Business Cards” to exchange!

One of tonight’s team members handed out these really well-done Michigan Harbor Guides, which are available for free at the Straights Harbor office, as well as on-line. Very nice to have!

We have been to so many great MI DNR funded marinas this past few weeks. I’m surprised that ALL of them did not have this great book to give out.

It has harbor reports for all these places:
