The Last Supper

12 June 2009 | Smokehouse Bay, Marco Island, FL.
RFE
After a wonderful time in Key West, we set the alarm for 5 am, pulling anchor at 6 am, 35 minutes before dawn. We motorsailed in beautiful conditions for most of the day, but the NW wind picked up to the low 20s as we approached Marco, giving us some nice seas. The tide was going out of Capri Pass as we entered at 7 pm. This combined with the incoming seas to welcome us home in style. Grendel dropped anchor in Smokehouse Bay & Dance Aweigh rafted to her starboard side. Fran prepared a wonderful dinner of Mahi Mahi (thanks Bone Cutter) & on Grendel we all celebrated the conclusion of a fine Bahamas cruise. Having Fran & Herm along was the highlight of this year's trip for us!
The following morning Dance Aweigh quietly returned to her slip at The Marina at Factory Bay - she performed beautifully this year, with no system failures whatsoever. We'll truly miss being aboard! 'Till next time!

Here's the gang at the bar by our marina, imbibing Key Lime Martinis - quite a unique concoction with Graham Cracker crumbs around the rim of the glass. One of these is quite enough! Darrell flies back to Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow - we'll surely miss him aboard!

Only in Key West! This pooch seemed quite happy to walk the tight rope.

About:
Margaret & Rich were power boaters 'till a few years ago, when we got the urge to cruise in a sailboat. We studied like crazy, took an intensive week of training on a Morgan 46 in the BVI, & bought an Endeavour 40 sloop in 2005. [...]
Extra:
2008 saw Dance Aweigh in the Bahamas again. Our new ham radio was a big success, allowing us to send & receive email, & to download GRIB files when not in range of WiFi. The weather was fantastic & we covered a lot of ground, including Bimini, Nassau, Eleuthera, Cat Island, Conception, Long [...]
