Blasting the final stretch
10 February 2015 | Key West to Tavernier
6:22 a.m. comes too early with shouting out side. A fishing boat filled with catch was being towed in the harbor two feet off our stern is to close for comfort but a great wake up call to get under way. The wind is blasting out of the west pushing us past Marathon before noon dodging lobster pots all the way . While underway with Wayne and Greg on deck a 40 pound king fish jumps doing a bulls eye towards Wayne . Two feet closer and that fish would have been in the cockpit or his lap! Rocking away the water color is brilliant turquoise stirred up from the 20 to 25 mph wind and the air 61 and rising with the sun. As we close in on our homeport at Captain Denis’s Red Neck Yacht Club in Tavernier the wind blowing is steady at 29 gusting to 32 ! Fortunately we are just a couple miles off shore and the wind is from the west hitting us on the beam. I would not want to be off shore today. Last night as we were coming in towards Key West the wind was increasing and changes directions quickly. Adonai was surfing down the waves peaking at 14, which is really fast especially in the dark of night off shore. Timing could not have been more perfect for our entire trip. All have arrived at the dock in good condition and ready to do it again. What a fast and beautiful trip up the islands. I could not have been with a better group of people or greater God for God has guided our way in a very special way. It is great to be at home.
