What to do when the waves on the lake are as high as 7′? Put the bikes on our little dinghy and row them to shore! Easier said than done, but we figure it out. It’s our 4th night in Erie, Pa. and our 2nd night at anchor at Presque Isle State Park but we don’t mind. I was awakened several times last night by the sound of the wind and the pounding of the lake a 1/2 mile away. A quick look around in the dark to make sure we weren’t drifting toward shore, and back to sleep again. We haven’t been at anchor in unsettled weather in months. It takes some getting used to, because trust is a variable thing and needs reinforcement now and then. Photos and captions of our ongoing, pleasant weather delay in Erie, Pa., below.

I hope you enjoyed your stay in the marina at anchor. I saw you and Moxie there on Saturday when I was checking on my boat.
That’s too bad about the food at Sarah’s it used to be good. But has been a few years since I have eaten there.
Good luck and safe travels captain I will continue to follow your trip with the blog and nebo.
Still enjoying your posts and hope Erie’s waves have subsided. We are in the world of Disney in Orlando but wishing we were lopping. One day when the kids older. You all are so close to crossing your wake. So my father in law just told me the people he knows loved their second time so much more than then first and some are wanting a 3rd
Thanks, Ben! The waves did indeed subside. We did 103 miles yesterday…a new daily record. (Post about that to come.)
And i can definitely see wanting to do it a 2nd time. The thought had already occurred to me. We are moving much too quickly for my taste…
