The End Of Lake Huron -

 August 17, 2001 

Say goodbye to Lake Huron. We are currently in St. Clair, MI, about 12 miles south of Port Huron. Although we had winds of 15 - 25 knots, the winds were out of the west so it wasn't too bad. And we got to play "dodge the freighters" with two ships coming into the St. Clair River. They are big puppies!

The riverfront in both Sarnia and Port Huron are beautiful. Brian remembers being here 25+ years ago and said it is much improved (of course, that was 25 YEARS AGO). We stayed anchored in Port Sanilac for two nights. Bill & Linda and Carl & Judy were anchored there as well.

We stayed an extra day because of high winds (30 knots) and rain on Thursday. The winds and rain made for some "interesting" dinghy rides to our boat for Happy Hour and Carl & Judy's for dinner!

Port Sanilac is a nice harbor. Coming in, the harbormaster gets on the loud speaker and says "Welcome to Port Sanilac, Captain". At first we thought it was a message from God, but then we figured it out and waved towards the harbormaster's building.

We plan to find a local bar tonight to watch football. Can you believe this is the first game we will see?!?!? You know we must be having a good time if we haven't gone to watch a football game yet.

From here we are off to Metro Beach (Saturday) and then to the Amherstburg area for a night (weather permitting). We still plan to be in the Put-in-Bay/Toledo/East Harbor area on Monday and to stay for a week or so. Then it is time to start heading east and south (but we don't want to think about that yet.)

Off to find a good place to watch the game tonight. (Go Redskins, says Jeri).

Cruising on. Jeri and Brian
