The Soo Locks is a way for ships and boats to get from one Great Lake to another. They have a wonderful observatory that has several levels to watch the ships go through. It reminded me a lot of when I was in the Navy standing on the third deck fantail watching the ships go in and out,
While we were waiting for the Edgar B Speer to get to the Locks, a small boat went through. It was nice that they had a schedule for when ships were to go through. It was interesting to see such a small boat go through such a large Lock. I wondered how much it cost a boat this size to go through.
Before we headed back the guys insisted on going to the Soo Brewery to try out some beers. The women went shopping. I decided to tag along with the guys as I wasn't in the mood for shopping. The guys all got the sampler and several bought growlers to take back for later. I tried the root beer, which was okay but nothing special in my opinion.
The rest of the afternoon and evening were spent at a beach wedding and the reception afterwards at the Wild Bluff Golf Course. The food was delicious and we had a very enjoyable evening with Matt's family. The reception was held under a large white tent next to the building. It had a beautiful view of the pond behind. Below are the beautiful couple.
