Day 36 Ferry Ride/Ludington

Today wasn't really a day off as we had to cross Lake Michigan to get to Ludington.  The van was loaded at 9am and myself Don and Jersey Mark ('cos that's where he comes from and we have several Marks on the trip) cycled to the Culture Cafe for breakfast.  I was intrigued by the back to front clock.
I believe that is a quarter to ten!!!
After a breakfast wrap and some coffee, we cycled into Fond du Lac which is apparently famous for it's crane making.  I saw this bike in a shop window and it has a crane built into the rear.

Some people went to the Maritime museum but I thought that the entry fee was a bit steep so just had a cycle around and was intrigued by what goes on in this bar!!!

We got on to the ferry for a 4 hour ride across the lake and pretty much commandeered all the loungers at the bow. Katie made creative use of her magazine,
while Don,my roomie, looked very much the Commanding Officer while looking for landfall!
We all disembarked successfully and made it to the Michigan State line.
It was then a mad dash to get to the hotel, unload the luggage, get to the room and get organised for a 6.30 start and our last century ride of the tour (113 miles to be precise).
