A short note tonight as I have things to do yet to get ready for an early start tomorrow. Almost no wind for the first 8 hours today so motored, then the last 2 hours the winds started to build. Go figure. Anyway, it was a beautiful day and I read Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea" while listening to the drone of the motor. After I think about that one I will write about what it meant to me. Thanks for the book Nikki!
Ran into some people tonight who were pulling out as I was pulling in to the anchorage who spend their summers on Lake Champlain. And yesterday I met a woman from Rutland, VT which is where I lived last before skipping town. Talk about a small world!
Tomorrow's destination: Cape Canaveral. I checked NASA's launch schedule and it doesn't look like they are lighting any candles while I am there. Oh well ...
Lastly, here are a couple of pictures. Instead of a sunset, I thought I would share the sunrise I was greeted with this morning as I left Palm Beach. I think I have done enough sunsets (and sunrises) now and won't burden you with them unless there is something truly spectacular. And the other one is a boat whose owner wasn't paying attention during the part of the class on how to securely anchor your boat. He's my neighbor for tonight ...
