We did try to leave Kewaunee, Wisconsin 3 days ago but had to turn around and head back to the marina because the waves were too much for the "Rover" (and me).
I took a walk around Kewaunee (pop 2900) and found a closed up for the season town. I did come across the tug "Ludington" that took part in the Normandy D-Day Evacuation towing ammunition barges across the English Channel. The tug was originally called "Major Wilbur F. Browder" and had 2 50 caliber machine guns on the front. The name was changed to "Ludington" in 1947.
Mike was very kind to us. He drove me to a grocery store to get supplies because it was too far to bicycle. He hopes to retire in South America when the time comes and we wish him and his wife well.
Sunset was not all that spectacular at the Kewaunee Marina as I had hoped to capture salmon leaping. It was not to be so I took a sunset shot of the bridge not too far from our slip.
Gary decided to leave the marina this morning as we are getting quite behind with our schedule. It was foggy when we left and rough all the way to Sheboygan making the journey very unpleasant. The weather forecast for the next few days is not good either.
I have been asked how much is it to stay at a marina. The price varies and is related to the length of your boat and what amenities the marina has to offer (showers, toilets, laundry etc). We have paid anywhere from $1.25/foot to $2.25/foot. The price can go a lot higher in peak season and for very fancy resorts.
Just to prove I can get up early if I want to, I got up for sunrise this am. In fact, I was up an hour and half before sunrise (5am). Unfortunately, sunrise was not worth it but I will show you the best of what I took.
Gary continues to hang onto his stone. I have been telling him for years that he never likes to part with anything!!!
We have travelled 1768 nautical miles so far. The furthest east we got was at Saurel on the St Lawrence (W73.1153, N46.0495). The furthest north we got was Blind River (N46.1781, W82.965).
