There are so many memorable ports on the eastern shore of Lower Michigan.
After coming down Michigan’s eastern shore, we crossed the bottom of its namesake lake from Burns Harbor to Chicago. It was one of those trips that seemed to take forever because we could see the windy city looming in front of us for the whole 4 hour ride.
We hooked up to a mooring ball in Monroe Harbor. It was very close to the city and offered wonderful skyline views.
We took a dinghy tour, had a late dinner, then drinks on the aft-deck as the sun set and the city lit up.
The next morning, however, was overcast and grey. The wind shifted and we rocked and rolled unmercifully on the mooring. It was almost impossible to sleep.
I made a reservation for the next 2 days for a slip at DuSable Harbor Marina, a much calmer place behind a second breakwater, and we were better able to enjoy our time in the awesome city of Chicago. SOCOBO 10/20/17
