Into the Wind and Away from the Strom

The weather forecast was spot on this morning calling for a wind from the south with waves up to 3 ft high 4s apart.  That is what we got and the ride motion was all in the pitch plane.  Not too many trips down to the salon and back today.  Our cruise took us another 40 miles or so south to a beautiful inland lake called White Lake .  We cruised a few miles east off of Lake Michigan to the small White Lake Municipal Marina, tucked in the narrows where the White River runs into White Lake. A stern in docking positioned us to be able to secure Viridian against a concrete pier using our 21" diameter ball fenders and protect the hull from wind and wave action. We will stay here while the forecasted storm passes through and the waters of Lake Michigan settle down so that it is fit to travel in again.

Whitehall, MI is another great little town with just one stop light and lots of shops, restaurants, etc to explore.

That's the news and here's some views:
