Left Frankfort, traveled to Arcadia + 40th Anniversary Day!

We traveled to Arcadia, which is not a long trip, even though the waves made the trip not the most comfortable.  Wind and waves were out of west so we motor tacked down the coast. This lessened the impact of the waves.

We spent  the day and night anchored in Arcadia Lake just inside the channel.

In the morning, the wind picked up and storms were predicted so we moved to Veterans Memorial Marina.

Just a few minutes after returning from the beach, a massive storm blew through.   This gave the opportunity for some very interesting photos.   We have never seen such intense bluish/purple in an approaching front.  The temperature dropped 20 degrees in about 10 minutes.

Very intense with wind blowing over 40 knots. The day immediately changed from just a leisurely day on the beach to hang on to anything not bolted or tied down … Both the Admiral & the Captain remain thankful to be tied up safely to a dock. Even if 2-foot high whitecaps appeared alongside the boats and docks.

No one could argue that our Anniversary Day was one without events!
