My boys and I left South Haven at 10:30 Michigan time. The waves were following and we were able to run 45 to 50 no problem. Just had on a light jacket. It was cloudy but clearing.
Pulled in at St Joe in about 20 minutes. Only boats around were fishing, cruiser and blow boats. I thought either we were way too early or missed everyone. Waited for about 20 minutes and left for Michigan City.
Pulled into Michigan City at 11:30. Went in the river all the way to B&E Marine. No boats tied on the wall. We thought we may be too early again went back out in the lake. We ran about a mile south to wait for the boats from Chicago or Hammond. During that time the sky cleared and it was very warm. After 30 minutes we went back in the river.
My wife met us by the wall in the river where we tied up. She drove to Michigan City to shop and my older son was goin to take the car home. We were the only boat on the wall.
We went across the bridge to Matey's. I told the waitress that we were from OSO and asked if anyone else was. She said no but would ask the other waitress. We had a great lunch. I will defiantly go back to Matey's.
After lunch we went back to the wall where my boat was still the only one there.
The lake was a little rough when we left. Rollers coming at us. We ran about 35. The sky was clear and it was warm enough to wear just a T shirt. The lake started to calm down and at St Joe we were able to run 45. By the time we reached South Haven we were running 60 with my wife in the boat. It was like glass.
I know this was long but since I was the only one there I felt I could go on a bit.
Hey everyone, lets plan another run. I'll be sure to tell you about it.
