Peter Fraleigh | Heavy thunderstorms!
We have been “on the move northward up the ICW“ for the past week!
Have met some really nice fellow cruisers during our travels! Jeff and Sandy Bacon, s/v Manatee with whom we first met in Vero Beach City Marina. They were gracious enough to teach Bunny how to use the “Aquamap” app on her IPad, then took us on a provisioning run at their home port the MBYC!
We also met up with Janet and Bill Brown again during our stop over at Southport. They were gracious hosts with which we enjoyed a nice evening, dinner at a local restaurant and then back to their house where Bill helped Bunny get her IPad backed up and previewed the Aquamap app. Bill was really impressed by what the app could do and how easy it was to use!
Some of our stops have included: Osprey Marina, Myrtle Beach Yacht Club, Southport Village Harbor Marina, Wrightsville Beach, where we are spending the night in an anchorage with 8 other sailboats riding out major thunderstorms!
Attached are a few pictures from our last few days. One thing we have learned during this trip is that we have really been blessed
To have been able to experience this lifestyle and meet so many great people with whom we can share our lives with, even if it is only for a short time or until we see them again “down the line”!
