Sanctuary in Manistee

Sanctuary secured a dock at the Manistee Municipal Marina.   They have a new clubhouse/bathhouse for visiting boaters.  It has a very nice lounge area and a number of individual showers.  The bathrooms and facilities are very neat and clean.

After touring town, visiting the grocery, and dinner we walked along the board walk to the beach for the sunset.

After dark, entertainment for the night featured watching a freighter maneuver through the river and out to Lake Michigan.  They look so much larger when they’re only a few feet away from the dock you are tied to.  The Manistee was build in 1943 and is certainly showing her age. The sailboat we shared a dock with had two young children aboard. A boy, Garett, and a girl named Anna. Watching their excitement reminded me of times past with our own children, Andrew and Amanda. Good times; memorable days. Just as we’re making new memories this time around.
