Lake Huron

On the first day of the Spring Trip, we were a little bit crazy even before we left.
We walked a mile or two in Bird Hills Park to burn off a little energy.
We ran into Mr. Gil Leaf, former Head of Summers-Knoll, and chatted with him for a few minutes.
On Saginaw Bay, we went out on the schooner Appledore IV.
To raise the sail, you must respond together to the command 'Haul Away!'

Haul Away!

We also got lessons in navigation, history, survival, limnology, and knots.
Then we got back in the bus and back onto I-75. A couple of hours later, we crossed the Mackinac Bridge.
That was it for Lake Huron, for the time being.
