LAKE ERIE – DETROIT TO SANDUSKY
02 September 2010 | Sandusky, OH
We made it to Lake Erie, current location is Sandusky, Ohio. We planned on staying last night in Toledo, Ohio. Couple of miles out of Toledo Bill calls the marinas and Yacht Clubs - either no slips available or too shallow. So, we turn around and scramble to figure out where we should go. Ended up deciding to go all the way to Sandusky arriving at 1:15 am. It was a bit hairy at the end with all the buoys to maneuver through, basically on instruments only. We called ahead to Battery Park Marina letting them know that we would not arrive until very early morning. They gave me the security guards phone number so I could call just before coming in to give us assistance finding the slip in the dark. Worked out great, the security guard was waiting for us, guiding us in with his flashlight. So far, only positive things to say about the marina.
This is the marina we planned on staying at on Saturday night, waiting for Craig to arrive. This will give us a couple of days to rest up, clean up the boat and explore a little. I think we will try and locate a Sports Bar to go to this evening so we can watch the Vikings play on TV tonight. Looking at the weather we may not be able to leave until Monday, will have to see if forecast changes before then.
