Last Week in Charlotte Harbor Area

31 January 2018 | Pine Island Sound
After dropping the Tahoe at Indianatown Marina and another late night back to the boat it was nice in a way that it was too windy to leave Friday for the Pelican Bay anchorage. Our anchor always holds grand and Saturday was no different. We get used to rock n roll as it happens often. Charlie spent most of the day doing boat projects and motor work. Changed to oil and filters, installed new shower and sink faucets in the head and a few other miscellaneous items. The faucet that he put in a year ago with the shower hose attached leaked all the time. No fun when you where socks and they are wet!

So Saturday became our travel day to Pelican Bay.



We wanted to get an early start so we could sail the whole 22 miles. Motor started - no pee! Bummer. More motor work. After a couple hours a new impeller was and belt was installed. Ended up that it was just a loose belt but why not do it right and be sure.

Off we went and sailed better then half the 5 hour trip before doing the last half motor sailing.\

Pelican Bay may be the best anchorage on the west coast of Florida. We were treated to cool weather so Charlie baked bread for the first time ever.





We were treated to a FULL MOON RISE and SPECTACULAR SUNSET at the same time while eating hot fresh bread. Yep, it was so we stayed four days before heading south. It also gave Charlie time to catch up with family and got the awesome photo of he and Elmer Facetiming.







Our first stop was St. James City again. We spent one night there at the east end of the city. We've now anchored in three places and the east end is our favorite. Less middle of the night commercial fishing traffic leaving the city.

Next was to be Ft. Myers Mooring field to replenish water, diesel and groceries.

Plus another trip to Trico Fish Company and of course BONITA BILLS!! We were quite surprised that all the balls were taken so we dropped anchor past the east field with the local live aboard community east of San Carlos Island in Estero Bay. Well...we really liked the spot and will go there again if we get the chance. We did everything we wanted and laundry too plus had an awesome sunset view every night of the entire mooring field.

After four nites it was time to head south to the keys.
