Day ? At Stuart

20 April 2012 | Stuart, Florida
I believe that last night we got a taste of what to expect for weather over the weekend. Watching the weather radar on our iphone, we could see a line of thunder storms moving across Lake O and heading in our general direction. Fortunately, the more significant ones passed to the north, but we got our share between 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Some lightning, no wind, and good rain. That rain has really been the first we’ve had in well over 2 weeks. At least it did wash off the topsides of Two If By Sea. The real weather is expected Saturday/Sunday. Afterwards, the wind starts in from the north. Not good for a crossing.

We have now been here in Stuart for almost 2 weeks and all 3 boats are looking at the options available to us. Tom and Maureen may head to Ft. Lauderdale next week and hopefully a window will appear and they would cross. Bob and Mary may head north to Charleston. We, on the other hand, may go back across the lake and visit all of our favorite haunts along the southwest coast of Florida. Crossing over to the Bahamas is not inexpensive. To have only 3 weeks or so to stay makes it more so. Except for Biscayne Bay, we do not enjoy cruising the east coast or the trip from the Keys north. Perhaps, tomorrow we may think otherwise.

On a brighter note, Patty got her permanent crown put in yesterday afternoon. We celebrated with ice cream, of course. Oh, happy hour had not yet started at Duffys.

Earlier, we scrubbed the waterline of the boat. It always takes a beating when sitting on a mooring ball here. We will have to do it again next week before we move on to where ever we are going. We also got some cards in during the afternoon. All in all, another good day in paradise.
