We started our journey today. After a week of delays, we finally got off the dock in Ludington. We wanted to swing through Pentwater one last time, so we only traveled the 12 miles or so from dock to dock and were done by 11:30 this morning.The trip was short, but a little bit choppy. There was a storm last night that churned up the water and the waves were coming from a couple different directions. This is not a big deal, just a bit uncomfortable.
Today was the first time we moved the boats with our 2 cats (Pudgy and Grace) onboard. They definitely didn’t seem to enjoy the trip. Poor Grace threw up and was laying in her own vomit until I picked her up and cleaned her off. They both found the tiniest and most uncomfortable spots to wedge themselves into. We’re going to try something else next time and see if we can get them to calm down. The chop and rolling motion it caused on the boat definitely didn’t help them get their sea legs!
The rest of the day has been about getting small jobs done on the boat – like making sure we can both grab t-shirts AND underwear without digging through the lockers.
We’ve spent plenty of time in Pentwater – we got weathered in for 3 days last summer – so we don’t plan to stay long. If the weather is with us, we will be quite a ways south for the weekend.
Here’s a bunch of delightful photos to show you the rest of our day.
