This is our 19th day of the Great Lakes Tour (Sat., October 12). We started the day with an early morning 4-hour car ferry crossing of Lake Michigan. We departed from Ludington, MI, and landed in Manitowac, WI.
Some passengers didn’t enjoy the motion of the waves at the beginning of the sail, and although it got smoother as we approached Wisconsin, some were VERY happy to step on land again.
Here are shots of the ferry taken by the Krills:
The USS Badger is the last coal fired ship/ferry still sailing the Great lakes and it has been designated a National Historic Landmark. Our crossing was the next to last of the season.
We met a long-time friend, Michael, for lunch across from this courthouse in Manitowac.
From Manitowac, WI, we ambled northward toward Door County and our hotel in Sturgeon Bay, WI. Here are a few pix along the way:
For dinner, we all gathered at Scaturo’s Baking Co. for an authentic Door County “Fish Boil”. It was cold and windy so we gathered inside in the warmth.
Then we stepped outside to view the actual boil-over. The Hulstroms got this shot of most of us as the boil was about to happen.

And, the final results:
