Road trip to the Gulf

05 December 2017 | Dunedin
Cloudy and warm. Calm
I spent the morning waiting for Enterprise to come get me. That wasn’t the plan, but cruising is about being flexible, so I rescheduled some of my chores. I took advantage of having a car and drove out to Walmart to provision and buy a 15’ cable so I could lock the dinghy. The downside to that is that you spend more money, since there is a bigger selection.

My sister Mary lives in Dunedin, which is on the Gulf side of Florida. My sister Kathy from Denver, flew in today to also visit her. So here we all are together. Mary has been struggling with serious medical issues ever since she moved from Illinois to Florida: stage 3C breast cancer, complications from that surgery, heart failure from the chemo, and the list goes on. Just walking is a chore for her. She is a mess and I have her permission to say so. It is great to see my sisters, but I just wish it were under better circumstances.
