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

Days 421 and 422 – at Charlevoix Municipal Marina, Charlevoix, MI - August 30-31, 2012

We enjoyed another two days in Charlevoix.  We spent time shopping at the Thursday morning farmer’s market and exploring all the shops on Bridge Street.  We also walked out to the end of the south pier in hopes of seeing some really big Lake Michigan waves – unfortunately the wind direction wasn’t right to make any really awesome waves, but the walk was great.

We often talk about the fact that all travel plans are subject to change.  Most of the time plans change because of weather, Friday night however, weather was not involved at all.  On Friday evening I got a call from my sister that my dad had fallen and broken his hip.  He was at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City waiting for the go-ahead for a partial hip replacement.  Fred and I spent the evening working through the various options we had available to get ourselves to Traverse City.  So, Boreas will be staying in Charlevoix for a few days and we will be commuting back and forth to Traverse City.
