Done for this season

Well Satagraco and her crew got to the house and her dock. Thanks to tropical storm Colin there was plenty of water in the canal system. We had an uneventful overnight sail from Marco Island. Leaving in the evening and sailing overnight probably gave us a little cooler temperature.

We left Green Turtle Cay (sadly) and spent a couple of days crossing the banks and anchoring in a couple more cays. We wanted to enjoy all the beautiful water while we could. We positioned ourselves in West End and had a lovely crossing of the gulf on 5/13. We had to motor across which after [...]

Well we waited a little longer and enjoyed the Green Turtle Cay Heritage Festival. The event covered 3 days but we decided to go yesterday (Saturday). We were told it was the Big day. After riding our bicycles into town we joined the festivities. We found some lunch--grouper burgers and watched [...]

During one of our recent dingy trips to different beaches and coves we found a bottle with a message in it. How often does that happen? On a little spit of land not far from the end of Green Turtle Cay the Atlantic sits on one side and Gillium Bay is on the other. All kinds of items come ashore [...]

Time Flies

Yikes I am further behind than I realized. Time has been flying by.

Another new place

After family left and we waited out a nasty night of weather we ventured on to Hopetown. Certainly not a long sail but one that we needed to time to the rising tide in order to get into the harbor. It did help that we sent Spindrift v.2 ahead of us going in. They draw a little less than us. [...]

After leaving Marco Island we sailed to Cabbage Key and anchored for the night. We decided to leave there very early (5 am) and sail the entire way back to St. Petersburg. We arrived at our home dock about 6:30 pm Sunday evening. Glad to be home but sad that this chapter of our adventure has come to an end. The two days of sailing from Marco Island were rather cold. We had the wind directly off our bow coming up the coast and we both looked like we were dressed for the arctic north. Pants, jackets, long sleeve shirts and gloves, we donned it all. We shed layers during the day but it was never that warm. As we made the turn into Tampa Bay and by the time we started under the Sunshine Bridge we finally had a good wind. We were doing 8 knots coming up the bay. To our benefit we got in a little earlier (before dark). It is good to be back in our slip and it has been so nice to see our friends. We learned so much on this trip about sailing, cruising and ourselves. We met so many nice people and visited islands, coves, and interesting places. Satagraco served us well and came through the trip like a champ. This adventure will have to start up again. There are more islands and places to explore and so many more people to meet. Until next time-----------
