I wasn't able to catch the Dool. She was entering the locks but I would be shooting right into the sun. The Jackson was a ways away. So we grabbed dinner and headed back.

I decided to take the road from Paradise to Sault Ste Marie. I thought that I had a chance to get the Herbert C. Jackson and Tim Dool.
I thought that I might have an outside chance of catching the Roger Blough at Whitefish Point.
Before I left, I saw that I might have a chance to catch the Roger Blough off Whitefish Point. After visiting the falls, I headed over there.
I didn't realize it, but it has been close to three years since I've stopped at the Falls. I wasn't in the area the last time I was in the Upper Peninsula and before that I had a rental car which didn't have a state park sticker. So this time I decided that I needed to stop there.
Since I was going up to the upper peninsula, I decided to make a stop at the Mackinac Bridge.
At the intersection of US-10 and US-127 there is a pretty major rest stop. This also serves as one of the many tourist information centers in Michigan.
A couple of weeks ago, I was going to take the trek from Hell to Paradise but I got sidetracked by some boats. On Saturday, I decided that I would make the trek and if I was able to catch any boats, it would be a bonus.

I got out of work early yesterday because we lost power shortly after lunch. I was kind of hoping that it would still be closed today and sure enough it was. I was actually kind of surprised because power doesn't stay out too long around here. Anyway, I decided to go chase the Queen today since I don't often get a chance to do that.
