Beautiful morning at Useppa. We slept in and got ready to weigh anchor. We ran up the Intercoastal to Cayo Costa and turned to show Art where I normally weekend.
Out of there and headed home. The wind was from the south and we managed to sail up Charlotte Harbor at 5.3 knots. We sailed up to Alligator Creek and motored home.
Karen came out to the dock as we got there. A total of 531 miles from start to finish. Of nineteen days on the water, only four days were spent under sail for the majority of the day. If you have to get from A to B and can't or don't want to wait for the right winds, it is motoring to do it.
Having Art along for half the trip was a ball. When two guys like and respect each other, have similar talents, and have absolute trust in each other, just sailing together is wonderful. When two old guys sit down and tell stories about their lives, their loves, and their families, it makes for a fantastic time.
Thank you Karen and Peggy for letting two kids from East Norwich get together again.
