    We arrived in Pentwater, IM from Muskegon on Tuesday 7/27/10 at 1630.  Bright sunny skies followed us all the way and as forecast the winds were from the south building to 15 knots – this lead to a rolling boat until I put up the sails around White Lake.  The seas were the short period 3′ variety.  We found an anchorage right across the Pentwater Lake from the town.  We will be here until Thursday when we depart for Manistee with alternate of  Ludington.

    The internet here is poor so I shall be brief.  We did a tour of the lake when we arrived yesterday and we went aground.  Luckily we were able to reverse off and get out into deeper water.  The charts are incorrect.  Last night we put the dingy in the water and cruised over to the town just before dark.  I also found out the combination of the municipal marina showers so we took a shower too.  It felt good to be clean again.  Today we will explore the town – maybe rent mopeds to do it.
