Good Bye Egg ; Hello Chambers Island

We had the slip until 11 am; so a quick stop a the Pink Bakery was in order for breakfast IMG_8594


We have gotten good advise from dock mates in the past; and this was no exception.   Be sure and stop at The Pink Bakery for a Danish when in Egg Harbor.  So we did …

MMM…. so good I felt the urge to draw my breakfast in my art travel journal!   I used watercolors,  and painted on a flap of the pink box. (The frosting is highlighted with a white correction pen)

I also keep  notes in my phone when anyone makes a suggestion because they are easy to forget, and so great to have as a reference when we get to a new place.


And here is my version of the Danish:

And back to boating:   some housekeeping is in order; and the chore today is to get a Pump Out.    We raised the marina on the radio only to learn the pump station is out of order.    We called back to Fish Creek and learned they only have pump outs on the docks for slip rentals.     Our only option is backtrack to Sister Bay.   The marina we had stayed at did not have fuel or pump-out facilities; but the Yacht club marina 1  mile north had facilities.   Revised plan for today- go to Sister Bay then cross to Chamber Island to anchor for the night.

I wondered how these riders felt as they floated right over our boat?

A few hours later we had backtracked to Sister and pulled in to the fuel dock.  Dock hands were ready and very efficiently took care of our business.

Dave did an excellent U-turn in the fairway to pull the boat in port side.

The wind is predicted to be South West and East later so anchoring in Chamber Island should be ideal.   It is about 12 miles from the bay- so hoping it is protected as we will have no other options once anchored for the night.

Dinner on the flybridge


following a most excellent dinner, the winds began to shift to the north;  we were in for rolly polly night as the waves and swells hit us from the north with no protection.     No indication of North winds in the forecast;   had to ride it out.    Next day smooth as glass so we took advantage of it and stayed at anchor for one more night.

Made the best of it- Perked coffee as no electricity at anchor; full moon; and life is good.

Love to get those sunset photos of the boat swinging at anchor , so a dingy ride is in order. Then relax with some fishing — finally get to use our new Wisconsin fishing license.  No fish to grill tonight may be another day.
