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….
the water is crazy clear.
We could inspect the entire bottom from the surface!

The sign is self explanatory….there is so much about this country I had no idea about…simply amazing…
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.

The marina was not our first choice but in hind sight it should have been
The marina and the town of St Clair was lovely. As the pictures show the area was absolutely beautiful
All over town were these beautiful statues….
The joy also of this marina were the classic two Classic Crafts
We really enjoyed out stay in St Clair. The facility, area and people were all just terrific….onto Detroit!
