After a restful day I awoke from solid sleep to raindrops tickling my face and thunder massaging my eardrums. It was well before dawn so I got up and attached the rainfly to my hammock. Rain coming harder, I remembered hearing folks at Hawk's talking about heavy rain all day today. Before falling back to sleep I wondered if I should stay on Bob-Lo another day, or if I should roll on.
As I slept, the rain quit, but the overcast persisted.Without the assistance of the sun to wake me, I slept later than planned. Upon awaking I decided to go and really had to hustle to get packed and ride to the ferry dock for the 8:00 boat.
The Kristen D, the Bob-Lo ferry boat operated by Kurt Plaunt and family has now docked in Cheboygan. I'm sitting in State Street Coffee, utilizing the wi-fi and topping of my phone battery. And enjoying a delicious Americano.
After I log this post I'll pedal for Mackinaw City on my way toward Petoskey. These photos are from my restorative day yesterday.
