The storm

11 February 2014
Mary/Greg Nice then thunderstorms
Left Naples and motored sailed south to Indian Key. Anchored in the gulf. Left early the next morning to get to the Little Shark river by the middle of the afternoon because of weather. The clouds rolled in and thunder and lightning began in the evening. It was really rock and rolling all night and into the next day. The winds were strong, gusting to 25-30 knots. This is by the Everglades National Park. We had no cell service or wifi. Seems a long time to be completely out of touch. Our anchor held but we did not get much sleep. Greg even slept on deck awhile to keep an eye on things. Suite Jolene's anchor line broke on Thursday morning so had to do some emergency repairs. Planned to leave early Friday morning as the weather cleared. Opps, our boat engine did not start. Where is AAA when you really need them? It finally turned over after the sun had been up awhile and charged our solar panels. We were so glad to reach Marathon. This is full of cruiser boats. There is even the Cruiser network on the vhf radio each morning at 9. They introduce new boats, talk about things going on, have a buy,sell, trade section and more. Since we are here during the weekend it is difficult to get repairs. We will probably stay until Wednesday.

Extra:
Greg and Mary had owned Nada Mas, a 23' South Coast, on Lake Dillon in Colorado for 33 years. We chartered in the Caribbean and Calif. numerous times. We were excited to begin our dream. While waiting for a weather window in the Truks and Caicos, Mary died unexpectedly Jan. 6 2015 after a [...]
