So on the way back to the TARDIS in Roosevelt Channel just outside G21 and past Tween Waters Marina between Captiva Island and Buck Island, Eileen says we're going HOME.

Hadn't really thought about TARDIS as HOME.

TARDIS is our home now...rewarding. We worked hard to get here and now we are living here. TARDIS is our home! This is what we see every time we go below.

Nameplate

They really built boats in 1979 and this is our home. Unbelievable!

Here's where the Queen sleeps

V-Berth

and the King sleeps here



What's most interesting about the berths is how at the same moment in time each hears something totally different. No matter what the conditions are during the night we each know what is going on. Comparing notes in the morning as to what we hear during the night is always interesting. Did you hear the shrimp last night?

Inside the home there are many perches and you never know where you will find one of us



Since the last post we've seen some interesting boats. As we cruised down to the south end of Pine Island we came up to JE IRELAND. She was cris crossing the channel under motor. We had just the full jib out downwind. We never passed her.

JE Ireland

After we anchored at the entrance to St. James City just east of York Island we enjoyed another awesome sunset

St James City

Wind was predicted in the 20's from the west so we stayed aboard for a day then we went ashore the next day after the wind died down.



The owner was working on the 1964 English built sailboat. We stopped at the end of the channel at this bar



Love the name...


Here we saw an Alberg 30 we think. Sister boat to our friends boats.

Alberg 30

There's always projects. This week is new stair treads on the stern ladder



And getting the heat exchanger under the solar panel to work. Success! After talking to Tom @CustomeMarine.com and looking at the system it was determined that there may have been an air lock in the heat exchanger. Not sure that was it but after messing around and tilting the panel more to the sun, we have 107 degree water now.

Since it's the holiday's we're finding lots of decorations



Even on the beach...Mucky Duck @ Captiva Beach



As always, we kayak allot. We're estimating 10 to 20 miles a week depending on where we are.

The Great Clausa Blueway Paddling Trail runs through the area. We landed here at Captiva



Along the way we passed Doc Ford's stilt house



after we landed we went to the beach



When we left it was close to sunset. Looking to the east is just as awesome



as looking to the west



The next day we did explored again and found a few more interesting boats.

Steel Ketch?

And this boat that was anchored near us last spring is now in a cove...soon to sink?



Heading back to TARDIS after a long ride



Untangle the anchor line, haul out & candle light dinner







Awakening to Enchilada Eggs, Potato Pancakes and Jalapeno Cornbread...YUM. Eileen is a great chef and creates the most fantastic dishes. Charlie is learning.
