Still here in perfect Pentwater. We arrived last Monday and have found no reason to leave. The hospitality of Ron & Marilyn has been so generous from sailboat races and dinner at the yacht club and a Meijers run to nights moored at the peaceful anchorage in front of their beautiful home (read as free overnight accommodations). Breakfast, dinner and a walk with Judy last week was topped off by a nostalgic boating weekend visit with Debbie, Tom and their geriatric dog Peek-a-Boo who got the hang of the boat life quicker than expected.
The storms yesterday afternoon and evening were spectacular but with minimal damage here in Pentwater Lake. One elderly sailboat captain who was anchored out reported that a wind gust turned his dinghy (with motor) upside down. As he was contemplating what to do about it another gust came along and flipped it back into the preferred position. Divine intervention?
We have shopped the stores, celebrated the captain’s birthday, biked to and swam at the beach, walked the piers and generally tried to act like locals appreciating this most user friendly setting. When the lake “lays down” tomorrow we will head south to Muskegon or Grand Haven.
