CharlevoixRather than stay another day on Beaver Island we decided to head for Charlevoix. It was rough (2-5 ft waves) most of the way with a south wind on our starboard quarter. However, we made it safely arriving exactly on time for the bridge opening at 1200. We signed up for two days at the municipal docks where we stayed 6 years ago. They park boats two deep here as dock space is limited so our boat is beside the dock. Next year there will be all new docks. The town has changed with no great Ace hardware across the street and a fudge shop where there used to be a really good art gallery. However, all the smurf houses are still here as is the movie theater and grocery store. We had to take a taxi to do the laundry as there is no coin laundry at the marina. In the evening the folks from the Ocean Alexander in front of us came over and we talked about all the things that go wrong with boats for several hours. Mark is a car dealer from Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. He said we should burn a quart of transmission fluid occasionally to keep the injectors clean on the engine. Lat 45.32 Long 85.26
