We liked it so much here that we decided to stay an extra day. The park near the marina has a number of neat statues.
The local Rock Radio Station was hosting an all day concert in the park directly behind our boat. Each amateur musician played for 1/2 hour. Some were very good, others, well...............
We were hoping to go to St. Simon's Church, but it was about two miles from our boat. Mid afternoon, we received a call from Jim and Connie Gillette (loopers and residents in Ludington). They offered us their car so that we could make a grocery store run and attend the evening church service.
St. Simon's is a beautiful, contemporary church. The music was excellent and the priest was warm and friendly, welcoming all of us who were visiting.
After church, we met Jim and Connie at the Yacht Club for their Caribbean Dinner which was excellent.
We also met their good friends Michelle and Kevin who had joined them this past winter (on Patriot) in the Bahamas. After dinner, we visited Connie and Jim's "double condo". They needed more room for family so they bought two condos and had a door installed between the two. Very nice!
Currently, Patriot is in Baltimore. The Gilettes will return to Baltimore on July 10th to begin the remainder of their loop. They hope to finish in September.
