August 30, 2012  Day 111      Ludington, MI     Total miles to date:  2178.1

As planned, we stayed secure in port at Ludington today as Lake Michigan was showing her bad side.  We used the time to do laundry, shop, rest, plan the route for next week, and generally relax.  It is good to have a day off now and then and Ludington is a very nice place to be!

Dinner with Chuck and Becky
We went to PM Steamers for dinner and had good seafood! The restaurant rings a bell when the car ferry arrives in port - what a neat tradition every night, and we have enjoyed watching it. We topped that off with a walk down to the harbor to watch the waves crashing on the breakwall.
Chuck confirms the water is cold!

We did make some decisions about our route for the next week. We have decided to go to Whitehall tomorrow, Grand Haven on Saturday and wait to cross Lake Michigan to Racine, Wisconsin on Monday.  Most Loopers cross directly to Chicago further south in Michigan, but we have friends in Racine and we will probably make the long crossing on Monday and stay in Racine Tuesday. As always, we are watching the forecast!
