Home at last
ah home…home for the boat that is. This is where we dock the boat. So, we are on a body of water called Lake Pepin. I am not sure why this is a lake really, since this is simply a really W I D E part of the Mississippi River, which divides Minnesota and Wisconsin. The lake is approximately 20 miles long and 4 – 5 miles across. There are 3 marinas on the lake to choose from, Lake City Marina located on the Minnesota side of the “river” in Lake City, MN, another marina on the Minnesota side called Hansen’s Marina, and the 3rd, located on the Wisconsin side of the “river” in Pepin, WI called Pepin Marina. We are located at Pepin Marina in Pepin, WI.
Once we got the boat settled in the slip, we finished putting some more items back together. We got the canvas back up for the bimini and the dodger, filled the water tank, hooked up the shore power cords and generally got organized.
We had dinner at the Harborview, which is a great local restaurant located overlooking the marina and later enjoyed drinks with our friends Don & Jodi.
Ahhh….it feels good to be “home” in our slip.
