A few photos from Thessalon to Richards Landing
At Richards Landing
28 Aug / 3 Sep - To get to Sault Ste Marie, we went via the George Lake and St Marys River way. There where so many photo opportunities along all the way with all the interesting landscape and houses/cottages. (I am only putting a few here - there are just to many to put them all :-))
There are two municipal docks here in Sault Ste Marie, the Bellevue and Roberta Bondar. We decided to go to the Roberta Bondar Marina as it is closer to downtown and just across the river to the American marina we will be going to, to clear customs and get our cruising permit. We took a week here for a few reasons, 1 - we want to rest a bit before tackling Lake Michigan, 2 - we still haven't resolved the water leak issue under the head/toilet (more on that in a moment), 3 - we want to play tourist a bit, and 4 - we need to catch up on personal administration stuff.

CBP has let us know that our cruising license is ready for us when we cross over. So it looks like tomorrow we'll be going to the Michigan side of the river. We will be embarking on our Lake Michigan segment of the Loop. So exciting and just a bit scary... but in a good way!
