First, I need to vent and then I will tell you about how beautiful the last week has been.
Last night as we pulled into Houghton, Michigan and tied to a wall my body and psyche collapsed. We have had 10 days of no wind which means no sailing which turns us into a power boat without the power or the amenities. So, Jim stood by patiently and then poured me a glass of wine and put pork chops on the grill. I recovered.
The scenery along this coast of Lake Superior is so beautiful. We initially had days chugging along beautiful sand beaches, then a day going past the Au Sable Sand Dunes which are amazingly high dunes that have been sculpted by eons of wind and then highlighted by growths of pine. After that came the Painted Rocks, again very high cliffs but this time created from rock colored by various mineral deposits. Lastly, have been the Huron Mountains fronted by woods, beaches, large pink rocks along the shore which pop out of emerald green water.
Today we are parked in the rain, had breakfast out and are resting which means no boat projects. Then we will wait for a wind to help us travel east to Bayfield. The weather will determine whether we go north via Isle Royale or south along the South Shore.
So there you have it. I like having all of you out there to hear the story. Thanks for that.
Ellie
