Final Days At Stuart
01 May 2009
It's time for an update and, perhaps, a final word before we cross. Sunday is to be the day as things now stand. The winds are to be about 10 knots out of the southeast, with waves 2 to 3 feet. During the last couple of days, we have just been hanging around the anchorage and going into town occasionally. We did hop on the bus yesterday and ran up to our favorite mall for a new sudoku book as we are about to finish the one we have on board. We also happened to find a Haagen-Daz store there. Cannot pass up on the ice cream.
Since we have been here, we have listened to a local radio station that advertises upcoming concerts. It seems that we have returned to the 60s and 70s as the groups include Spyra Gyra, Jefferson Airplane, Davy Jones, Steve Miller, James Taylor, Kenny Rogers, Hall and Oates, and The Beach Boys. Where is Rick Springfield? Says something about the audiences in eastern Florida.
Because of our delayed departure from here, our friends from P Dock at Burnt Store Marina, John and Celia, have caught up with us. They are taking their 42 Grand Banks trawler back north to New Jersey and will be taking a mooring ball here tonight.
We have talked so much about where we are, we walked across the highway bridge this morning to take this picture. Our boat, along with Bob and Mary's, is in the final row.
