We toured the City of Milwaukee Railroad Car Ferry and the Coast Guard Cutter Acacia in Manistee. They are both retired and on display for tours.
City of Milwaukee Car Ferry (retired)
After touring Manistee, we left for Ludington. We met Bob and Vicki in Ludington for a planned reunion. We also met together with a number of Lakeshore Yacht Harbour friends which was not planned. Scott and Karen pulled into Ludington Municipal Marina on their new boat named Last Call. Their boat to be slipped at LYH.
Part of the fun in Ludington is watching and hearing the Badger come and go. The Badger is a car & passenger ferry transport. The ferry travels between Ludington and Manitowoc and is one of the last remaining coal, steam-fired engines in the United States.
After leaving Ludington, we traveled to White Lake and anchored in Indian Bay for the night. Other than sharing the bay with an anchored flotilla of four power boats each with their own dinghy, all’s calm and quiet in this protected bay.
Next stop should be our home port of Muskegon.
