Where I stayed
Cedar Point Yacht Club
We had a really beautiful day today. The seas were pretty calm, and we had relatively consistent wind all day. We would be just cruising along, and then we'd check our speed and we'd be moving at 7 knots, easily (and at the start of the day, that was more like 8 or even 9 knots). It was pretty great. The sun was peaking in and out of the clouds, and the temperature was (relatively) comfortable. I know I wasn't alone in feeling a bit discouraged by the ridiculous weather that occurred in the first couple of days - when a fisherman told us we "better hole up until next Tuesday," we were a bit bummed. Luckily, the weather has turned in our favor for the moment. We've had great wind, been pretty dry, and feeling comfortable. All is well.
We pulled in to find a marina just as the sun was setting. It was a great end to the day. We are now secure at Cedar Point Yacht Club (next to some swank yachts, I might add), getting ready to settle in for the night.
