Lake Charlevoix to Pentwater MI

We did stay an extra day in Charlevoix because one of the loopers we traveled with sent an email and said they were coming into Charlevoix to celebrate a birthday.  Turns out they didn't leave the next day from where they were because of visibility.  So we surprised Todd one more time at breakfast in the morning and finally said our goodbyes.  Back at the boat, we did our final preparations for departure early in the morning for a seventy mile destination of Frankfort MI.  We left at 7:30 am and had a beautiful glass water trip the whole way.  We arrived in Frankfort around 3:30 and the only thing we did was walk to the post office and walk Chloe.  I made one of Jan's favorite, patty melts, for dinner and we went to bed early for our next destination, Pentwater.  We left at 8:00 am and again had glass water but heavy fog.  Fog is a good thing on Lake Michigan because that means no wind which means no waves.  I love my Garmin radar and could see anything in the way.  The fog finally lifted and we pulled into Pentwater around 3:00.  Everything is within walking distance and we walked with Chloe the whole six blocks of the town and bought a few things along the way.  Leaving tomorrow for Grand Haven.

Sorry, just had to add this of our son Gary who lost over 70 pounds in the last 18 months and finished the Tough Mudder in Lake Tahoe to support Wounded Warriors

For all you Michigan people, this is The Sleeping Bear

Really?  I don't think they have any fishing rules in Michigan
