All’s Calm at Sand Bay, Apostle Islands, Wisconsin

We spent the night anchored in Sand Bay on the Wisconsin mainland.

The radio monotonously broadcasts the near shore marine forecasts over and over again as we finish a late breakfast. As we sit on deck surrounded by the glassy waters of Sand Bay, the radio reminds us that the temperature is 71; that the surface water temperature varies between 38 and 61 degrees (depending on where you are, likely on the warmer end of that range here); and that the SE wind is at five knots or less, with waves of two feet or less. The radio announcer sums up the forecast simply:

 “The wind is calm”

“The waves are calm”

“The sky is clear”
