"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

Fairport Harbor & Home to Vermilion

The weather has been beautiful, little wind, blue skies and comfortable temperatures, a real treat on Lake Erie. Knowing how the lake can change, we have decided to head for Vermilion today from Fairport Harbor.  It is about 53 nautical miles, a good days run at 8 kts.  We are still in the "trawler mode" saving on fuel.

An overnight stay last night in Fairport Harbor would not be complete without a stop at Pickle Bills for all you can eat crab.  So we had a delicious celebration dinner, a day early, and stuffed ourselves with crab.

We will be heading into familiar stomping grounds today, no paper charts or waterway guides are needed now.  Such a gorgeous day to be coming home.

We crossed our wake in Vermilion at 2:25 P.M. and we are excited to be home, safe & sound.
