Welcome to the blog of Fred and Julaine as we chronicle our adventures traveling the "Great Loop" on Boreas, our Carver 405.

Day 426 – Rogers City, MI to Harrisville City Marina, Harrisville, MI - September 4, 2012

Although we traveled a fairly long way today, it was an easy trip with great weather (light wind, no waves and beautiful sun) almost the entire way.  We continue to remark on how beautiful the water is here in the Great Lakes.  We know it will change once we get into our home waters of Saginaw Bay, so we are enjoying every moment of the amazing blue water. 

One of the neat things you get to see when you travel along the coast of Michigan is lots of lighthouses.  The pictures from yesterday’s blog show lighthouses from northern Lake Michigan and northern Lake Huron and the pictures for today will show the lighthouses we passed as we continued south down the coast.

Note on Dad’s condition – my Dad is doing great.  The partial hip replacement went well and he was up and walking today as well as sitting in a chair to eat.  Hopefully he will get the sign-off from all his doctors within the next few days so he can head to a rehab facility in preparation for going back to his home in Beulah.
