Lake Michigan Picts

I have posted a few pictures of the harbors nearest my boat. Those of you in the Great Lakes region might notice that the ice is thinning!

The page with winter pictures:

Winter On Lake Michigan

Here is a real time web cam of the Holland Channel, Holland, MI

Webcam from Spyglass

And of course, my homesite:

Voyages of the June Bug

Nice pics Mike - Is that a footprint of a bigfoot or a sailor out of his element on the hard (ice - HARD ice? - get it?)

Gunner,

I share your pain. I have been doing projects in the basement, but eventually I'll be in the cold too.

It was to cold today for me. I have 25% of the cabin sole home so I can varnish it. I have been installing a link 2000 battery monitor and a new refigerator. In the next few weeks I will order a new wind generator and wind and depth gauges. I am also redoing 3 hatches and repainting the booms. I could be done if it would warm up!

lake michigan winters

hi there,
yes, same here, I hate winter! We hate winter! Major snow storm dumped a good amount of snow, blizzard like conditions over the weekend. Before that, it was sub-freezing temps.

To all you blue water folks and cruisers down south, I'm already envious, no need to rub it in! *LOL*


winter projects keeping me busy but soon, it'll be warm out..and may launch will be here!

BTW - GREAT website, loved watching the June Bug cruising vids!
