The Soo Locks and St Mary’s River

We have traveled far today and saw and did some new things.

We crossed Whitefish Bay and entered the St. Mary River headed to the Soo Locks.

We got really close to some of the big freighters going through the channel at the same time.  Radar on and vigilant.  Some places only allow 200 foot wide channel to pass in.

When we entered the channel they had quite a marker out to tell you were there.

Sorry no pictures of the Soo Lock but we were both pretty busy with lines and boat hooks.

Tomorrow we will be into our second Great Lake, the Huron.  Seems like we are traveling very fast even at 6 knots.
