Sailing Through A Fog Bank

On September 1, we sailed west in the late afternoon under sunny blue skies from Chippewa Harbor on the south side of Isle Royale to Grace Harbor on its western-most end.  A dense fog bank descended on us a couple hours into the sail, covering the sun. We sailed blindly through this for hours, relying on GPS to navigate. We were not far from the Rock of Ages Lighthouse, where skeletons of past shipwrecks litter the bottom of the Lake. I could see the peril of these waters in fog and storms before modern navigational equipment came into use.  We finally arrived at Grace Harbor just as the fog cleared and the sun was setting
