We left this morning in the pea soup fog motoring slowly with radar and a bow watch... thinking the fog would burn off quickly.... this is Florida right, not Maine....
New Years Eve12/31/2011, Saint Augustine, FL
We were all set to go out to dinner for New Years Eve, and after a nice shower at the Marina, we realized the best view in town was from the bow of our own boat... so Isobel drove us back out where we celebrated with music and fine dining...

The girls have a get together12/27/2011, Near Orlando, FL
Once we had recovered from or Christmas festivities, we prepared to get underway... and I called my friend Jimmy of Starbound... He said, "I'll pick you up in a couple hours..." So off we went to spend a couple days at their house. For not being a boat, it is a pretty cool spot on a freshwater lake. He has approached it with a captain's eye, adding LED lighting and Solar panels. An edible yard will follow the growing towers that are bulging with lettuce...

One of the fun things about being on the dock in St Augustine, other than than allowing the family to step aboard, was the bird show.

Initially the Scuut allowed us to walk around and not carry her... now we have to run to keep up!
Meeting with Family12/24/2011, St Augustine, FL
We awoke early on Christmas Eve to travel the 30 miles south to St Augustine... where Helme, Mettie and Lily had set up camp the day before in the Casa Monica Hotel. We took a slip so we could have easy and quick access ashore. The festivities started immediately!
