August 31, 2012  Day 112      White Hall, MI          Total miles to date:  2227.3

Well this was quite a day! We had a forecast of 4-5 ft. seas for the first part of our 49 mile trip to White Hall, then it was supposed to improve to about 2 ft seas. Wrong.  We had big waves the entire trip. The boat handled it but it was so uncomfortable, and a few things were broken.  We arrived at White Hall Municipal Marina on the very pretty White Lake at 4:00. There are several marinas here but we chose the municipal one. Unfortunately neither their pump out or laundry facility was working. We are ok here for the night but would have chosen a nicer marina for a longer stay.
We relaxed with appetizers after our arrival and then walked to the nearby downtown. We came back and had a quick dinner on board.  It has been a very long and rough day, so no photos today!

Tomorrow we will go to Grand Haven and stay for two days. We are happy that old friends Jerry and Karen Mackey can stop and visit us on the boat. Joyce and Karen went to college together and were roommates in Battle Creek when they were teaching school.
It is hard to believe this is the last day of August and we are approaching the Labor Day weekend!
