We had been watching a weather window for more than a week that would allow us to make a comfortable overnight passage down lake Huron. We made a short transit over to Tobermory from Wingfield Basin.

Tobermory is a wonderfully protected harbor and just the water….

After a good dinner out and good nights sleep, we were off. The forecast was spot on and we had a terrific day.

With the sun going down the “running lights” came on and we “set the watch” Annette takes the 9pm-12, I get the “midwatch”, Annette comes back at 3am and then I am back at 6am.

As the sun came up the morning was beautiful.

As we approached the south shore of Huron we approached Port Huron and the Bluewater Bridge which connects Michigan and Canada.

We stayed over on the Canadian side of Huron to avoid shipping but when you get near St Clair River, no avoiding!

On the way to our marina we needed to have like the only bascule bridge in the area open. Its first opening was at 8am so we have a little time to kill in the middle of the St Clair River.
