sailing away with R & B
Old photo

In keeping with the previous post, here's a photo from our wedding day in San Antonio, Texas, 42 years ago. Yes, I know we look like kids. We were 19 and had been dating since we met in English class at our high school in Bryan, Texas at the age of 16. We're still in love and love what we're doing now!

Dang, I forgot that you two had the same anniversary. I have no clue as to how she has put up with you this long?

Nice to hear from you. We should be on the move again in a few weeks. Lets see if we can keep this tub afloat for another year of cruising.

Today is our 42nd wedding anniversary. To celebrate we decided to take the short trip north on the ICW back to St. Simons, where we are anchored for the night. We had a nice motor here (after I successfully took us out of the slip for the first time), enjoyed drinks and appetizers in the cockpit, followed by this beautiful sunset. Then we had a nice stir-fry and for dessert fed each other bites of a delicious key lime cupcake from Pam Pam Cupcake Bakery. What a great day!

Congrats, guys! Nice sunset for your special day, too.
America's Cup racing

Here's most of the group that watched the race here at the marina. I didn't go back for the camera until it was over and a few people had already left, but you get the idea.

America's Cup racing

Team Oracle USA crossing the line to win the America's Cup.

We've spent most afternoons for the past two and a half weeks watching the America's Cup racing. Coverage here started at 4 and ran until about 6 most days. That means that boat work and daily tasks had to end by 3:30. We started watching with just 2 friends, but our group of 4 gradually expanded as the races went on, plus we started bringing snacks and drinks. Today I think there were about 20 packed into the cruisers' lounge watching the final race. It was a good close race and really fun to watch!

We'll miss our 4:00 gatherings now that the racing is over. I guess this means we'll have to do more boat work. Sigh.

Sea turtle visitor

This little visitor came by our slip yesterday and today, nibbling things off the docks. He/she is about a foot long and seems pretty calm around people and boats - hope it knows to be cautious around moving boats!

Bison on the plate

A vitamin and health food store here offered samples of bison (buffalo) during First Friday. We came back the next day and bought a couple of steaks and picked up a bottle of Chilean pinot noir at the wine shop next door. The steaks and the wine were very good!
