Today we crossed our wake. In other words, we finished the entire circle or Great Loop of the eastern coast of the United States and Canada. It was an experience of a life time and we hope you all enjoyed following along with us. We had over 14, 000 views on our blog.
After Kewaunee Marina, we headed for Harbor Centre in Sheboygan, WI. We originally were going to fish a second day and head to Manitowoc, but the weather report looked nasty. We decided to skip fishing and spend two nights at Sheboygan instead. We were glad to make this decision. Yesterday there were very strong winds. It was reported waves reached 8 feet. They were jumping high over the Sheboygan break wall. Great to watch, as long as you are snug in harbor.
We saw a weather window this morning and decided to get up on plane for Milwaukee. It was a wonderful ride.
Most importantly, we appreciate all of the new friends we met along the way and are happy for the support of all our other friends and family.

Just another lighthouse on the way to Sheboygan, WI. We loved seeing the differences between each and every one of them.
We had dinner With Mike's Sister Mary and her husband Mark, in Sheboygan. They were our first family sighting, as we approached home. We were very happy to see family.
Beautiful view on the way to Milwaukee, WI.
Mike drove most of the way from Sheboygan to Milwaukee. He loves to drive fast, on plane.
We took pictures of Milwaukee as we got closer and closer. It is always a unique perspective from the water.
The above is a picture of the Milwaukee harbor north gap. This is where we entered the harbor.
There are a lot of sailboats in the McKinley Marina. We had to go there for our last tank of gas.

Great view of the Milwaukee home bridge.
Joell, Mike and Elwood holding the AGLCA looper flag and our new Gold Looper flag, we now get to fly for crossing our wake.
Joell's sister Beth met us at the South Shore Yacht Club. We were also met by our loving kids Kristin and Tom. It was really great seeing everyone again, in person. Skype just isn't enough.
Walt met us later and a lot of South Shore Yacht Club members greated us with open arms. It was a warm welcome home.
Just a short trip by boat....we were back in no time...
