Day 420 – Harbor Springs, MI to Charlevoix Municipal Marina, Charlevoix, MI - August 29, 2012

We had a leisurely trip to Charlevoix today.  First we traveled across Little Traverse Bay and did a “drive by” of the Bay Harbor Lake Marina site.  This is a planned community with beautiful homes and condos and an amazing marina.  If everything goes as planned, we will stop here for a night on our way back to Bay City.

Then it was on to Charlevoix.  Charlevoix is definitely one of our favorite stops on Lake Michigan.  The harbor has great facilities (both their docks and their on shore buildings) and the town is fun to walk through and explore. 

            Miles: 22.3      Bridges: 1        Locks: 0
