Pirates

sunny with 5-10 knot breeze
Arrrr Mateys. Hand over your booty and make it quick about it. We were greeted with these lines as we motored past the Pirate ship located at the end of the dock. They were getting ready for a sunset cruise.
We were ending our day and we were staying at Salty Sam's Marina. The last two night were spent on the hook (anchor for you landlubbers) at Useppa island and then at York Island. Our plans had been to anchor the first night and dingy over to Cabbage Key. They have a great restaurant that has been there for 50+ years. The only way you can get there is by boat. The anchor was set and we settled down to a we're here glass of wine. The boat gently rocked as the wind picked up. Soon we are totally relaxed after a day of sailing and we have no desire to leave the boat. Cabbage Key will have to wait for another time.
Thursday was a short motor to York Island just off of St. James City on Pine Island. We planned on meeting Greg's sister and her husband on Friday and needed to check out where to meet them. 25 minutes of a no wake idle speed in the dingy found us at Woody's. A local restaurant/bar located on one of the Florida canals. It was a great lunch of fresh seafood and back to the boat we went.
The seas were calm with a slight breeze from the north. There was just enough breeze to cool us off. It was delightful, slow motion rocking that put us to sleep that night. We met our family the next day and then headed to Ft Myers. Here we will stage to get ready for an overnight sail to Marathon. We have never done this by ourselves and we are a little nervous. Our plan is to leave around 2:00 and get to Marathon Sunday morning. If all goes well we will be there in time to find a sports bar and watch the Broncos.

About: Greg has been sailing since he was 21. I grew up in North Dakota and started taking advantage of the constant winds. After selling my bicycle store in 2006 we got more serious about living our dream on a sailboat. Greg and his wife purchased Mile High Dream in 2013.
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 [...]
