Our summer checkout cruise

We have planned a summer checkout cruise to get warmed up for the Great Loop and ensure everything is working and in place as planned. We will go north to Charlevoix to meet up with our good friends Win and Susan in their Tiara. From there, weather permitting, we will go on up through the Mackinaw Straits and into the North Channel. We have from July 14 to 29 and look forward to visiting other friends we know along the way.

Here is Great Laker at the dock and anxious to go. Occasionally during the summer we get an algae bloom which colors the water green.  The contrast of the water, cobalt blue hull and clouds in the sky drew Elizabeth to take this shot before we headed out for a day on Lake Michigan. This coastal cruiser is rather unusual on the Great Lakes and we constantly get the thumbs up from observers wherever we cruise.
