Madcap Sailing
too busy to write!

Once again - I am soooo far behind in the writing.

We are on the dock in Fernandina Beach - washing, cleaning, applying cetol, sorting, and doing all the other things that must be done before we haul out next Thursday at Tiger Point Marina.

We had a pile of fun in St. Augustine, gadding about with Zingara Bruce and a good run up here on Sunday. The weather is hot with a touch of a breeze at night - vastly different from when we were here in Jan!

We're off to Charlotte SC by car for a weekend visit with Sue and Terry, then back here and into the last mad rush.

More interesting stuff soon - relatively speaking!

We made it to St Augustine! A total of 30 hours (from Vero Beach down to Ft Pierce in the ICW and back up the coast), 6 of them under sail alone, and the rest motor sailing with varying levels of the "motor" part. 168.4 nautical miles.

As I seem to be saying more and more often, I'll write details later. We had a good trip, in company with Bruce on Zingara, got in here about 1:30 on Friday, and are anchored on the north side of the Bridge of Lions. We'll explore around here for a day and probably leave on Sunday to go up to Fernandina Beach.

Glad you made it safely to St. Augustine, but still happy that you stopped in Vero for awhile first.

Hope you have a safe passage today assuming you ship out as planned. Remember it is not over until the lines are passed off to the marina. It is funny how as a lurker I am sorry to see this journey come to a close. Could be that I enjoy a closer connection now than I will have when we are drifting back and forth into each otherís community on a regular basis. Say nothing that you are living my dream.
I hope you realize my infrequent comments were in respect of your spotty Wi-Fi connections not disinterest.
Come see us when you can, you canít miss the joint now with our bright red barn.
Hope you have an easy passage into Canada with their host of questions from Apples to zoological items.

Sorry we missed you folks in the Abacos, maybe next year? We are sailing the west coast from Juneau to Victoria this summer, which should be different than the Bahamas...
safe journey home!

Finally Leaving - and New "Stuff"
Beth / overcast with a nice breeze

It's early morning, and we are heading out of Vero Beach. The birds are chirping and dolphins fishing and all is well.

We had a fabulous last meal at the Dockside Grill last evening (thanks Pat and Wayne for introducing us to it) Have I mentioned before how much I love to dinghy to dinner, dine well, then get back in my little boat to come home to the big boat? There is still something so exotic about it.

I added details to the Stomping Grounds post and the Whooda Thunkit Post and stuck in another one on Guana Cay so there's more reading material there if you're interested! See you soon!!
