The winds were calm for most of the run to Blind River.  But in the last hour the winds picked up, and we had a little rock and roll by the time we arrived.  We found loopers who had spent the previous night anchored in Beardrop.   It had been extremely windy and uncomfortable with everyone up all night to check their anchors and positions.  We were glad that we had passed on Beardrop. 
Jeff, Carlton, and the 2 of us rode our bikes a couple of miles to the downtown area of Blind River.  It is a small town with few shops or restaurants, but the people were very friendly.                       
Total miles:  30      Total bridges:  0       Total locks:  0
