Day 8,9 & 10 Long Lasting Leland

We were up early and left Oyster Bay in time to make the 8 O’clock opening of the Charlevoix Lift Bridge.

We expected a weather system to come later in the day and wanted to get a little further south before it hit.  Leland was rumored to be a nice place so off we went.

38 NM later we arrived at the Municipal marina in Leland.  It turned out that there was a car and antique boat show going on when we arrived.

Had drinks by the waterfall/dam with Bill and Marilyn at Rick’s Cafe (below The Cove Restaurant).

We finished the day with dinner with the Watsons at the Bluebird Restaurant.

A good day was had by all.

Sunday 22 – Gray day – windy, rainy and wet.  Did some electrical projects that didn’t get completed before we left Port Franks, Jan did some much needed laundry, then met for lunch at The Cove with Jill & Paul (nice couple we met at Oyster Bay, Lake Charlevoix) on their way home to Indiana.  Great coversations with a great couple.

Monday 23 – Another gray day, windy and extremely rough, rainy & stormy.  However, the evening brought a red sky at night (sailors delight) after a nice dinner and games on Knot Diggin’.

It was a longer than anticipated stay in Leland and we are all anxious to move on to our next stop.  Let’s hope the red sky is a good omen.  Hopefully we can head to Frankfort tomorrow morning.

      By good do you mean the $75 Grand Traverse Distillery “Ole George Whiskey” or the brown bag of $9 “Clan MacGregor” blended Scotch?
      The Grand Traverse is very smooth and fine to drink neat. The Clan MacGregor smells like paint thinner but is suprisingly acceptable when paired with ice and water.
