Hauled boat up to Grand Marais michigan this past july for holiday weekend.
Had great weather and made several boat trips.
Longest trip was to whitefish point and back...about A 100 miles trip total.
Also did the pictured rocks national lake shore and circled Grand Island near Munising.

Wish I could move south to key west Florida.
Actually this winter has been very mild... above normal temps and not much snow.

Boat is still in winter storage.

Night time temps are still near or below 32 f so little early for me.

First trip will probably be detroit river-lake Erie...pretty boring compared to Hawaii.
