Well, after breakfast we decided to motor down the river to see what the lake looked like. The waves looked OK, so we decided to head out to Ludington. The sky was over cast, and we did get a little rain but nothing like yesterday. We had a really good sail for the first 7 miles or so, then the wind petered out so we had to motor the rest of the way.
We got into Ludington about 3 PM and got a slip at the town marina. We will most likely stay here tomorrow as the wind is predicted to be from the north at about 20 knots. That will give us a following sea at 4 to 6 feet, which will be quite uncomfortable. Thursday looks like another good day to travel.
We've made about 85 miles in the last 3 days, and that's good progress. We're now about half way down the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. That makes Chicago possible sometime next week.
The boat and I have now travelled 1145 nautical miles since I set out in June. Bev has done 557 miles less.
