Frankfort, MI

We departed Leland after a weather delay of one day,  for Frankfort. The 40 mile run was a 2 hour trip.  We programmed the Chartplotter for the entrance channel (breakwater)  off of Lake Michigan and viola, there it was.  
Nice municipal marina with competent deckhands to help us in.  We backed in a slip and powered up.  most of the boaters bow in which for us makes it difficult to hook up our shore power.  The strong westerly winds caused quite a surge in the area, rocking Island Hopper all night one night.

 A nice town that had a sidewalk sale and farmer's market when we arrived. We found a great restaurant that just opened, Cru Cellars which has a sister restaurant  in Tampa, have to check it out this winter.  
The marinas are well maintained complete with flowers.  We had to stay two extra nights due to high winds so we caught up on laundry and boat chores.  No one moved.
