Our travels back to Michigan from The North Channel have been fast and family-filled. As this would be our last time in Michigan for a while (at least via sailboat), we planned a tour from Roger’s City to Detroit. Many visits left us in tears and others we were just plain distracted. It is easy to fall in love with each place we visit but have to look forward towards the goal of having an Endless Summer. Have you ever watched the old school surfing movie called, Endless Summer? Check it out here, it’s a fun watch. Our story is much different but as the colder months inch closer, we’re happy to stay focused to our upcoming travels. Hopefully without a Winter this year.
So as I mentioned before, we have had a whirlwind of activity since leaving the beautiful Canadian wilderness. We thought it might be the last of our travels but have decided to continue onward. We said goodbyes and the Michigan side of Lake Huron before continuing our way into Lake Erie; officially leaving Michigan. Our travels on the East side of the state were incredible. Here’s a preview of the stops –> Roger’s City –> Alpena –> Harrisville –> Tawas City –> Harbor Beach –> Sarnia –> Detroit.

Michigan is beautiful. Tharon and I have explored it most our lives. We’ve done lots together. Hiked the Porcupine Mountains in Ontonagon. Biked Mackinac Island. Went glamping in Yurts. Chartered our first sailboat in St. Joseph. Caught fish in Leland. Climbed dunes in Glen Arbor. Kayaked the Rogue River in Rockford. Hammocked in Rothbury. Partied in Ann Arbor. Explored each of Michigan’s scenic waterfalls. Toured most of Detroit. Visited all five of the Great Lakes. The list goes on and on and on. There’s always something awesome to enjoy in Michigan. In fact, we’ve seen more of Michigan this Summer than any other combined. Sailing allows us to travel more freely, providing a truly rewarding point of view of all its beauty.
It’s difficult to leave the comfort of Michigan but we’re ready.
