Drummond Island to St. Ignace

3 Jul

 It was smooth as silk when we left Drummond Island this morning.

The plan was to cruise past Mackinac Island and see if they could find a bit of room at the dock for Bushranger (they said that slips were ‘first come first served’ due to the US Independence Day celebrations).

As we got close, we figured we were going to be out of luck – it was nuts!

There was a sailboat race underway, ferries were zipping by, and there seemed to be a whole lot of folks that wanted to be in OUR space…

So off we went to our next choice – the St. Ignace Public Marina.

…and we lucked out – what a great place! It’s so great we think we may even stay a while longer.

Before I sign off I wanted to leave you with some photos of some really cool lighthouses that we passed.
