Today was the ferry ride across Lake Michigan from Manitowoc to Ludington Michigan. This was billed as a rest day, but it was really anything but. We had to load luggage at 10am at the hotel for a 2pm ferry that was 3 miles away. We sat by the dock in sweltering humid heat. The ferry left an hour late. It is four hour ferry ride with time zone change, so we really did not get to hotel (hungry) until about 9pm. And we are riding 113 miles tomorrow…

Ferry is coal burning and environmental disaster. It has operated on waivers for a number of years and will be converted to LPG at the end of this year. It appeared to be operated by Mennonites. Not sure how that all makes sense…
