Overlooking Charlevoix Marina in Round Lake

Lake Michigan was smooth and beautiful as we cruised for 7 hours from Mackinaw City through the Straits of Mackinac and Gray's Reef to Charlevoix.  The Charlevoix Municipal Marina has been remodeled over the past few years and is very attractive with new docks, fountains, and lots of flowers.  We arrived a little before 3:00, walked downtown, and did a little shopping. 
Whitney’s Oyster Bar featured half price appetizers during happy hour.  We ordered enough that it turned out to be dinner.  Becky and Carlton went back to the boat, but we walked with Jeff and Linda and checked out a little more of Charlevoix.  It’s a very pretty city, and a great stop for loopers.
