The trip is taking its toll on Martha. She has gone completely gray. Just kidding, this is her new natural hair style for the Bahamas trip. It took her 3 months of new growth and a short cut to get rid of the blonde. We have both decided we like the new look. Well we finally made it to Miami Beach. We have a quiet anchorage not far from the Miami Yacht Club. Miami is a big city so there is a lot to explore. To start off we tied up at the dingy dock at the MYC and looked one of the original members of the Macassa Bay Yacht Club, Jim Duncan. We got into the stories about the old days and one beer led to another and before we new it the day was over. Jim is now the dock master at the MYC so it is a good connection to have if we want to hang out there anytime during our stay. This morning we took our faithful dingy on a long trip up a canal that takes you all the way to South Beach. We walked along the board walk for a while then found a spot for lunch. We will now keep a close eye on the weather to get a window for our crossing to the Bahamas.
