We traveled from Port Huron out into Lake Huron to the top of the thumb, ending the day at Harbor Beach Marina.
To start the day, Jeremy walked to Chef Shells Catering and Roadside Cafe for amazing donuts. We enjoyed those very much. If you are in Port Huron be sure to stop down town on main street by the river.
After a very long wait for fuel and a pump out, we got under way out into the St. Clair river. The current in the St. Clair river at this point is very strong, cutting our forward speed in half. Once out into Lake Huron, we resumed normal progress.
Bill was waiting on shore for us next to the Bluewater Bridge and waved as we went by. He used his towel as a signal to be sure we didn’t miss him. He had just finished his workout on the tread mill and swimming. At a fraction of his age, I’m not sure I could keep up with him.
After the Bluewater Bridge we passed Fort Gratiot Light House, the same one we climbed and toured from land yesterday. So now we saw it from both views.
The trip up Lake Huron was calm, and mostly cloudy with one passing rain shower.
For dinner, we grilled BBQ chicken & corn on the cob on the boat and finished the day at Harbor Beach.
