Youze Gonna Need A Yacht to Get to That Yacht Club

Pere Marquette Lake rises quite a bit and makes the Yacht Club an island to itself. Yep, there's a road somewhere.

And your wheelchair or skateboard up that hill too.

Looks like some guys from Hart.  To answer their question:  He's right up that hill and to the left, if you can get up the hill with that peg leg of yours.

You never know what high water will bring into the harbor.

Last year over a period of about 6 weeks, I watched big dump trucks unload crushed asphalt to the tune of about 400 loads or more to raise that road up about 1-1/2' to 2' higher. DNR law states citizens/businesses are forbidden to back fill any land closer than 100' from the water without a special variance permit. The DNR just ignored it and even after it was reported several times. Guess some get to do anything, and nothing illegal is pursued. They sure have a lot of city worker members too.

This actually appears to be a full-fledged seiche on a smaller scale, Manistee reports:

Coincidentally, it's almost a year to the day that Lake Michigan had their meteo-tsunami (seiche) that left the Ludington lighthouse as an island, which happened on April 13, 2018.
