Time to head out on our own- we left Running Free at Fish Creek- as they were waiting for a weather window to continue sailing south. The south winds were gusty and predicted over 15 knots; so we decided to head north a short 10 miles to the marina at Sister Bay.
We motored past the popular anchorages of Horseshoe Bay and Shanty Bay; and arrived at Sister Bay about 10:45. The winds were building and the waves were cresting at 4 feet. Glad to slide into the slip. The rates are $1.79 per foot; so we booked 2 days; noting the weather forecast is for a storm approaching and heavy winds. Actually ended up reserving Friday as well- and were happy to get the last slip available so we could stay one more day.
The folding bikes came in handy- first night peddled over to the park to enjoy a free summer concert. The band had several string instruments and featured a drummer on a Judah Drum. Chatted with the friendly folks around us who were also visiting Door County and Dave shared a few boat cards with those interested in our travels. DA
Colleen has been working on a travel art journal with an alphabet theme for each day. Think of our calks as a photo-scavenger hunt for items to represent our recent letters ” V, W and X”. Colleen found Windows, Wheel Barrow and Wheels at the antique store; plus Welcome signs.
Dave noticed Volkswagon, BMW X-5 and Volvo to help out with the cause. Getting into the spirit we added a few more photos , then a collage was drawn into my journal.
And here is a page from the art travel journal:
And to end another day at the marina; we enjoyed a beautiful sunset and look forward to another day at Sister Bay.
