Hi Russ,
We had a mooring about 1/2 mile north of the marina (which had a 6-year waiting list for seasonal slips in 2001!) On Fridays when they had the live concerts in the park next to the marina, we'd sit in the cockpit and share a rum and listen to the music. Most of all I remember fondly jumping off the stern for a dip in the clean clear cold water - for about 6 weeks from late july till early sept, the warmest water of the season and the only time we could tolerate the temps.

Here in the Chesapeake we're working and sailing the murky greenish black waters on the weekends. Sailing season is a lot longer than in MI, tho. 3 more years and we're headed south.
