"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Mackinac Island /St. Ignace

The weather cleared somewhat, and we left Drummond Island for St. Ignace, which is on the upper peninsula of Michigan, across from Mackinac Island. Hard to get dockage at Mackinac, so we will take the ferry over tomorrow and hope the weather will continue to improve. Today we explored St. Ignace, it has a beautiful boardwalk along the waterfront. Had lunch with Ralph & Ann from the boat "Harmonie" at the marina pub. Tonight there is a fireworks show over the water, so we should have a front row seat again. The marina was new in 2003, great new docks, beautiful clear water, good company, it doesn't get better than this.
