Beaver Island day 2

Well the boat is still in one piece and I managed to weather the storm. No thunderstorms thank goodness but talk about blowing! We were having 2 foot rollers inside the harbor here at lunchtime. My two anchors held firm and besides a bit of rocking and rolling and cabin fever the boat came through unscathed. We are not out of the woods yet however, with this bad weather supposed to be sticking around for another couple of days but we are over the worst of it. In fact, tomorrow if we get another lull in the wind like we did this afternoon, I will head into the marina and reprovision ready for a Wednesday push across the lake. It is a serious 70 mile leg however and the wind may be a little on the high side so stay tuned.

In the meantime here are some photos that I took Saturday. One of the strong looking ferry here, one of Gray's Reef Lighthouse and finally one of the buildings at the entrance to the harbor.
