Sturgeon Bay’s Maritime Week continues its run. The appearance of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Escanaba generated much interest in Sturgeon Bay and the waterfront. Pam Siler of the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center says summer is always a busy time of year for Sturgeon Bay shops and eateries. But the Escanaba’s appearance made it even busier.
Siler says the Escanaba’s crew was fascinated by Sturgeon Bay and the Great Lakes. That’s because the Boston-based cutter’s crew liked the idea of sticking their hands in the surf and not tasting salt.
