Leaving Round Lake was great, we got the 0900 bridge opening and were out in Lake Michigan pushing water shortly after. It was a chilly morning, high 50’s and it stayed this way until around 1000. We crossed the mouth of Grand Traverse Bay. Then passed sleeping bear dunes and through Manitou Passage, in between the Manitou Islands. Then finally arriving in Frankfort.
909′ great lakes freighter, so long you can’t even see the stern
Entering Frankfort, Betsie Lake
I ran into my old neighbors from PYC Phil and Pam Eastman. This reminds me of how small a world it is, they are doing the loop as well and moved from sail to powerboat! we will probably cross lake Michigan with them Wednesday after the winds lay down.
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is located along the northwest coast of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. The park covers a 35-mile-long stretch of Lake Michigan’s eastern coastline, as well as North and South Manitou islands. This park has outstanding natural features, including forests, beaches, dune formations, and ancient glacial phenomena. Below you can see people going up and down the dunes, must be quite the workout.
Jacobson Marina is a great establishment. They have a pool, hot tub, laundry, fuel, pump-out and small store 231-620-0474 Owner John lives on site and will be happy to have you visit! Jacobson Marina is located right inside the harbour to the port side. This is a great small town to walk around and lots of shops stores and good eats.
