    Day 3 continues

    [singlepic id=203 w=320 h=240 float=left]Slide show below.  We did go kayaking on the crystal clear Platte River yesterday our day 3 here in Frankfort.  It was a great trip down the river and from the drop off point we walked the 300 yards (or floated) out to Lake Michigan.  We did not take any pictures so we are without anything to show for our efforts except our memories. The river was a real zoo of tubers.  The water was almost luke warm.  We were back at the boats by 1730 hrs local.

    Prior to kayaking we toured the Sleeping Bear Dunes and area with stops in Leland and Glen Harbor.  Sleeping Bear is absolutely world class as is the whole area.  It is hard to believe this is in our back yard and we have never been to see it before.  Cruises are great.  The picture is one area of Sleeping Bear.  Along the way we purchased for $10 a lifetime Senior National Park pass – what a real deal.

    Day 4

    The internet was still not working this morning so I asked the marina if we could look at it.  He said yes so I logged into the router and had the thing up and running is a few minutes.  Now I can continue with the blog and get email.

    I turned in the car this morning and now we are without wheels.  Today we stay here again as our flotilla has by democratic decree decided we did not want to sail the high seas today.   Wind from the NW would hamper our progress and the seas are 3 or 4 feet of chop.

    The LM has layed down by the afternoon and sailboats were departing.  We will leave tomorrow for S Manitou Island which is about 30nm distance.  Bill and I spent time talking at the Frankfort Beach while Peggy & SAM walked down to the first point ( a few miles).
