Thursday, Port Huron, MI, to Harbor Beach Municipal Marina, Harbor Beach, MI: What a difference from yesterday. Our first day on Lake Huron was smooth with calm rollers. It was a beautiful sunny day and we took advantage of it; we went 66 miles. The dock master gave us a ride to town for groceries and supplies for our next oil change. She said she used to be a teacher but the school had to lay off people to meet their budget. She was one of the lucky ones who are still working but only as a cook in the school caferteria.
CO's comments: Since we have been in these waters, all the Canadian weather reports are done in both English and French. I getting so I can pick up some of the French. The Harbor Beach area is really depressed. There are very few boats in the marina. I talked with the dock master and she said they thought last year was bad but this year is starting out even worse.
