WA…HOO…

It’s totally incredible! After 4 weeks and 900 miles we made it! We are out of Lake Michigan. Hooray πŸ™†πŸ»πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ After leaving St. Joseph around 7:45 yesterday morning and a 60 miles crossing of Lake Michigan we have arrived at the opening of the the Calumet a River.  (around 3:30 p.m.) We decided to anchor outside in the Calumet Harbor since there is really no place to anchor for 40 more miles. Beauty handled fabulous during the crossing with out her mast on. Waves maxed out in the middle of the lake with 2 footers on the port side beam (left) the mast didn’t move at all.

It was a tad hazy out, but we were able to enjoy our last ride on the bow crossing  Lake Michigan.

This is the Chicago waterfront from around 20 miles away in the haze

   The Calumet Harbor where we are anchored in. When Bryce gets done working we will embark upon another 40 miles today. 

  You can see the entrance to the Calumet River. The sailboat is going in.

  
While we were enjoying our evening coffee on the bow we watched this barge come out of the Calumet River
