Manitowoc, Wisconsin – September 3rd

The trip down Lake Michigan to Manitowoc was a little rough. We waited until after lunch which allowed the lake to calm down a little before getting underway.

In Manitowoc it was rainy, so we got our umbrellas out and walked around.

There was a 28 Boat memorial walk outside the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, with the USS Cobia SS-245 submarine that you could spend the night in… Again we didn’t get to go through the museum or sub, but interesting to know that there were 28 different subs built in the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company during WWII.

Larry found this cute park and decided to do the fountain dance in the rain! We found a great concert at the Warf on the lake where a “Heart” tribute band, called Heartless was playing. They were very good and reminded us of going to the Black Jacket Symphony in Bristol, VA in the past.

We walked by Legend Larry’s buffalo wings place on our way to the best Brisket at Smokey’s BBQ. Manitowoc was also known for the ferry from Michigan to Wisconsin — one of these giant ferry’s came in as we were leaving the marina the next day.
