Welcome to Northport

We took Chuck and Becky out for their first day on the boat and headed to Northport. Grand Traverse Bay cooperated and gave us a smooth ride all the way.  We arrived at 12:05 just in time to get docked and then have lunch on board.
We decided to check out some of the shops this afternoon although some were closed on Sunday.  Becky and Joyce liked one of the gift shops in particular!  Bill will go back to the hardware store Monday morning before we depart.  The shower sump pump in the forward head quit working the day before our guests arrived!  West Marine delivered a new pump to the boat yesterday in Traverse City, but Bill still needs an adaptor to finish the project.

Joyce and Becky played cards after shopping and the guys found time to take naps.  They did fix the aft deck door locks though which was greatly needed!

We had dinner on board and enjoyed the fabulous mountain berry pie that we brought back from the pie restaurant yesterday.  We went for a fun dinghy ride to complete the day.

Tomorrow we will leave for Leland after we run errands.
