DeTour and Richards Landing

On day 7, we awoke to low winds and started again for the North Channel. The Lex Chenaux Islands are quire picturesque. There are lots of "woodies" and some very unique homes.

Do you think this family likes boating?


Detour is the entrance to the North Channel and there is a Coast Guard Station there. We went up the freighter channel that leads to Sault Ste. Marie. The typical freighter is over 700 ft long and 26 ft wide drawing 25 ft of water.

The day was calm and we sat on the bow going up the x river. Anne got some sun on the bow while I piloted with the remote.

Swift came along side on the way up to Richard's Landing which is the northern most point of St. Joseph Island and the northern most location on our trip. We enjoyed a dinner at the marina and listened to music provided by a singer who played guitar and harmonica.
