|The beautiful scenery at Peninsula State Park|
The winds were lighter, but looked promising. We kept the reef in the main and went to full headsail until we figured out what the winds were going to do. We didn't really have a plan on where we wanted to go and since the winds would let us, we headed south toward Fish Creek and the Strawberry Islands. We had sailed into Fish Creek from Egg Harbor before, but this would be the first time we had come in from the North. There are small islands and numerous shoals in this are which required us to hone our dead reckoning skills while allowing us to play with the iNavX software on the the iPad.We also had our paper charts along for reference. Mike preferred the iNavX and Brenda preferred the old fashioned paper method.

Now you can see why we look forward to our Door County sailing trips. There is beautiful scenery, nice marinas, great sailing grounds, interesting boats to see, places to shop and eat, and maybe a bar or two. We will definitely return again next year.
