From Superior to Michigan

It's hard to come down after you've been on Superior but coming down is exactly what you do--about 25-feet to be exact. Roseway left Duluth, Minnosota after a fantastic festival that ended on August 3. We had a good sail back across the biggest of the lakes to the Sioux Locks where we officially began to head south again. Into Lake Michigan we spent a day anchored off of Leelanau Peninsula where we painted the hull and got re-charged for the next port visit of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Joining back up with the other ships in Green Bay this weekend, we've faced the challenges of being a big boat in a small river. Tomorrow we continue to head south to Port Washington, Wisconsin and then on to Chicago. Along the way we are learning things like: Green Bay is not actually a green bay and the Green Bay Packers stadium truly does seat almost the whole population of Green Bay. Who knew?

So far, we've liked Superior the best of the lakes and Duluth wins the port hospitality prize hands down. Port Washington and Chicago still have a chance to win. Stay tuned!
