Well.. What can we say about yesterday. Rain rain go away til.. later today. it just didn’t shut down the show, it slammed the door and went home, like many of the boaters expected at a record breaking event. But we’re in Algonac, home of motor boating. And there is a ton of other stuff to do. In fact in a very strange way, it was the perfect day. no boats to look at, we did that yesterday. Today was an opportunity to take in the spirit of how our passion was created. And the Maritime Museum in Algonac is a great place to start. You can see some cool stuff there that is from here in Algonac.
But honestly the entire town is a museum. The wonderful restaurant Catch 22 which was the local bar, which we also visited. But right now lets talk about the museum. Located in a donated bank a couple years ago. The museum is thriving and located across the street from the statue of Chris Smith and gar Wood.
Also right down the street from the Algonac Cemetery where Gar Wood and Chris Smith are resting in peace.
And of course there is another museum on Algonac, but its loaded with great local stuff.
The list of rare one of a kind local history is all here. Rain, or shine, or lots of more rain cant damper the Algonac spirit or fun. That is the magic of the area and the low presure fun aspect of this local community. We will report more through the week. Right now we are off to drive home. Stay tuned, and look for info on the great Woody boater Poker run in Muskoka.
