Thursday 070815– in Wyandotte Michigan
Weather/Sea cloudy, little wind, 65 to 75
Captain - John C. Kwak crew Chuck Livingston
We are in Silver Shores Marina off the Detroit River in Wyandotte MI and arrived here on 7/6/15 at 1600 after a 7 hour motor trip from Middle Bass Island. We are finished with Lake Erie and onto Lake Huron, to get there we have to go up the Detroit river to Lake St Clair and up the St Clair river. The next three Great lakes discharge thru these rivers so there is some current to fight going up stream.
Yesterday we were at the Henry Ford Museum which displays a lot more than cars. Among other things it shows the history of cars with examples of the earliest cars up to the present, but it also has Airplanes including the venerable DC3, which I have flown in many times in Ecuador. It also has a Railroad exhibit with some very old and huge steam Locomotives. One Locomotive had 6 driving wheels on each side. We had lunch in a very old Diner that is also a display. Since it was a rainy day it was a good day to see the museum which was well worth the $18 fee and the $30 cab ride. We also saw an Imax movie Undersea World in 3D, the theater is in the Museum.
There is a street Fair in Wyandotte today. We are going there later with Chucks’ god daughter Madelyn whom he is close with and she lives near here. He has two daughters that are far away in California and Chicago. Tomorrow we plan to motor up the Detroit River and thru Lake St Clair thru the St Clair River Delta and find on the North Channel of the St Clair River the Algonac Harbor Club, our next marina.
