Onward We Go!

Okay.....truth be told, the sign of a great captain is that he cares for his crew. The mornings on Ti Amo are quite chilly and the captain of Ti Amo awakes and immediately turns on the generator, heater and then the coffee pot all while allowing the crew to stay warm and toasty. What a guy! Jaxon thinks he is the captain but he needs to learn a few more "tricks" to earn that title.

Our day will be a long one with about sixty miles to cover to get to the Pungo River. We have only one bridge to wait on which is the Alligator Swing Bridge. Our terrain is pretty much desolate with the occasional house stuck in the middle of nowhere. Our internet connection has been very spotty during the day making it a great day to read a book.

We spied a friend ahead of us from Marion, Massachusetts. Diamond Sky, a 36 foot Leopard Catamaran is looking fine as we pass her in the canal. I am out of the cabin waving at what I thought was Roger (the captain), however it was truly a captain he had hired to take the boat to Florida. We exchanged a few words and went on past him.

Interesting to me is that we have seen two women who have been single handling their own vessels today. It reminded me that our dear friend Jiho said I should get my captains license. After seeing these two women, I have all the respect for what they are doing. Their vessels don't appear to be equipped with some of the luxuries I have become accustomed to.....I am not sure I could be out here without a generator and heat. They are bundled up because they don't have an enclosure to protect them from the wind. Again that is a total game changer for us and I am so thankful with these temperatures to have it.

We are anchored on the Pungo River and watch the sun go down shortly after getting the anchor set.
