Traverse City to Frankfort

We left TVC about noon on Friday, 8/26.  Weather forecast was sunny, clear and 2 to 4 foot waves.  We rounded the point  at the top of Traverse Bay into Lake Michigan and the waves were at least 4 feet.  Off to the west was an impending storm.  We made it to  Leland about 1/2 hour before the storm hit.  Very happy to be off the water!  Weather forecast for today was sunny and clear....  the 2-4 foot waves were at least 5 to 6...very rough.  We had to zigzag our course so that we did not have beam seas.  Traveled over 60 miles today.  We were very glad to get in around 1pm.  A small craft warning was issued this afternoon.  Frankfort is a beautiful little town!  Found and attended St. Ann's church tonight, then went out to dinner.  We are at the municipal marina.  I've attached some photos from Frankfort.

  1. Glad to hear that you are at least moving on the water and making progress. Stay safe in your travels. Weather back home has been wonderful, low humidity and enjoyable temperatures.
