Best Sailing Days Yet
11 May 2011 | Tarpon Basin Key Largo
Shortly after I blogged yesterday morning in Biscayne Bay, the wins came up and we motor sailed the rest of the way to Elliott Key at about 7+ mph on flat water. Glorious! We anchored in 6+ feet of water and there were no other boats within miles until the evening. I did manage to get into the warm water to clean the waterline. Very bad. The diver at home will have a challenge doing the bottom when we are back. Time to have it repainted.
We were up and underway by 7:00 this morning. Absolutely beautiful with a nice breeze, allowing us to motor sail a couple of hours. We completed Biscayne Bay, then went through Card Sound, Little Card Sound, Barnes Sound, Blackwater Sound and are now anchored in Tarpon Basin off Key Larg
o. The last two days have been the prettiest of the trip.
Now for an update on Patty's health. There has been some improvement but she doubts she would be much help in the remaining long days ahead. So our very
dear friend Tom and Maureen of s/v Cantagree are driving sown this afternoon
to get her and Tom will help me bring the boat back. He is excited about it as
they have the same boat as ours. Their recent trip to the Exumas was a bit shorter than expected so now he gets to repeat the last few days of their trip. Toy cannever have enough friends like Tom and Maureen. So, we have been getting the boat ready for his inspection. Peer pressure!
