And then there was one.....
19 August 2008 | Lorrain, OH
Well, my nephew, Derrick came and took Brother Dave back home which just leaves me, unless you count Wilson.
After getting some help leaving the dock in PIB from my new friends, Wayne and Roger, I set out for Lorrain, Ohio. Even though I've single-handed Norma several times, it felt different this time. Not just because of the 23 kt winds and rough water either. (HELLO LAKE ERIE!)
Anyway, I arrived in Lorrain and Spitzer's Marina without incident What a great place and great people. When the weather turned crappy the following day, I stopped by the office to tell them I'd be staying a second night. The lady said that, since the weather was keeping me there, they would throw in the second night for free! Amazing!
If you even find yourself there, be sure to eat at the Jackalope Restaurant right there at the marina.
Here's a pic from Put In Bay of the Coast Guard practicing docking. I guess its an acquired skill for everyone!
