This was our
forth trip on our boat into the Straights of Mackinac
- but only
the the second trip with our kids. This years trip
was unique in many ways. Most noteable was the great
calm lake conditions. Lake Huron was flat every day we
were on it... perfect for our group of power boats.
We covered over 150 miles in five
days and discovered a few great new places along the way.

River Lock and Mullet Lake
home port for the week was Cheboygan Co Harbor, Lake Huron. It's
a perfect gateway to the Straits of Mackinac, Mackinac Is., Drummond
Is., the Soo Locks and the Chain of Lakes.

Macinaw Island We spent
two nights on the island at the State Marina. One night we had
a heck of a thunderstorm and got trapped downtown with the kids.
We did the island bike ride and picked up some fudge...

Les Cheneaux Islands / Mighty Mac
Bridge We spent the last night
of our vacation anchored off Government Island in the midst
of the beautiful Les Cheneaux Islands. The lake was so calm
on the way back to Cheboygan that we took the long way home.
We went by Hessel, around Marquette Island, down to Mackinaw
Island and crossed under the Mackinaw Bridge into Lake Michigan.
