We were heading to Holland, Michigan but changed our plans. Over the weekend and the beginning of next week, the winds are forecast to be high and create some high waves on Lake Michigan. It was so beautiful and the lake was so calm today, that we decided to go 67 miles to St. Joseph, Michigan. It was like we had the whole lake to ourselves when I took this picture looking off the bow.
With this change of plans, we are now renting a car here in St. Joseph and will drive about an hour to visit Holland, Michigan to see the windmills. Another day. we will head to the Blueberry Festival in South Haven, Michigan. Having a car will help us provision staples for going down the rivers after Chicago.
On the radio, we heard the Tug Ann Marie issue a securite warning a couple of times. As we got closer to St. Joseph, we could see the triangle on our chart plotter that indicates a boat that runs AIS.
Tomorrow, our rental car arrives and we will start touring by car.
