Trip to NMC Great Lakes Campus - Oct 11 & 12

On Monday we took Inland Seas to Traverse City for the Great Lakes Funders meeting at the Great Lakes Campus of Northwestern Michigan College.  The trip home on Tuesday was mostly in fog, and we had to dodge around some fishing boats near Power Island.  A good trip, and our last one before heading for our winter berth later this month. 
Early morning at the Great Lakes Maritime Academy
