The straits of Mackinaw is how you enter into lake Michigan, the waves, swells were about 1 foot, and quickly went to 3 - 4 foot. At that point we made the decision to go to Beaver Island instead of Petoskey. We just wanted to get off the water, it's no fun when your getting tossed around. Looks like we will be staying here for a few days. Beaver Island is a small resort town, we met quite a few people who were also waiting out the weather. Tomorrow is Jim's birthday, and they have an Irish pub here that we will have a birthday dinner at. We will probably pass on Petoskey when we do hit the water, and go to Charlevoix.
