Thursday 8th of August, we left Frankfort and headed to Pentwater, well we actually ended up in Grand Haven, 14 hours and about 150 miles further.
|The early mornings on the lake can be chilly|
Crazy hey! BUT the weather was good and the waters were calm (ish). We had following seas and by the time we got the entrance in the Grand Haven we were surfing 4-6 footers following seas. That was interesting!!

|Tired but happy-Sundown Grand Haven|
|Grand Haven Sunset|
But overall it was a good day, but we were very tired after such a long day on the water and were very happy when we finally tied to the free wall in Grand Haven. I was still tying lines to cleats when the first person stopped by to chat. The friendly people of Grand Haven like to ask questions about Canada, The Loop, the boat and the South African flag that flies from our Starboard radio antenna.
We met a nice couple who plan to start their Loop in the next year or so, and we look forward to catching up with friends we met here last year on MV Blue Angel.
