We left Sugarloaf Marina in Port Colborne this morning at 6:20.
It took us 5.5 hours to make it across the lake, 24.2 nautical miles to Dunkirk, New York. We had another really rocking, rolling ride. I didn’t get sick, though, because the waves were big but more predictable than the other day when I got seasick.
After we settled in, registered at the Chadwick Bay Marina, and checked in by telephone to U.S. customs, we explored the town a bit by bicycle. Every person we met was remarkably friendly. The part of town that we saw reminded me a little of a miniature scale Detroit city.
We expect some big winds in the next couple of days so we may be staying put in Dunkirk. There are a couple of free musical shows at the parks here tomorrow so we’ll probably take them in. Other than that…well, we’ll see tomorrow!
