Making the Run to Chicago – Ludington and White Lake


We pulled into the Ludington Municipal Marina. We saw that SS Badger ferry boat come in and out. We walked to downtown Ludington and bought a few things in the small grocery store and Wesco gas convenience store. I wish I had some cool stuff to tell you about Ludington…but that’s about it.

We then headed down to White Lake Municipal Marina. We walked to downtown White Lake and bought a gallon of milk. I wish there was something else to tell you that was interesting…but there ain’t.

Not every destination is a winner. Sometimes the reason to get to someplace is to get past it on to some other place. That is the case of Ludington and White Lake. Not there was anything wrong with them: far from it. But after our great experiences in our previous stops these were let downs. Ludington was the better of the two and it did have the redeeming features of being bigger than White Lake, there was a lot of people around to talk to and seeing the Badger come in and out was cool. But these two stops were convenient dockages on the way to other places.

Next stops are Holland, MI and Benton Harbor, MI.

I know it’s a short report. Sorry.
