This is our last night at this marina. We connected with an old college roommate of my wife's. Her and her husband took us on a provisioning run, so that was nice. I took advantage of the marina facilities like hot showers and filled up on fresh water. Tomorrow I'll buy a few gallons of gasoline before heading out. Marinas aren't cheap, but it helps that our boat is relatively short as they charge by the foot.
Monday we took my wife's friend and her husband out into the Gulf. The forecast just dropped the small craft warnings, but it was still pretty lively out there. We didn't stay out too long as one of our guests was feeling some anxiety with the big waves. In fact, when we got back to the marina drinks were in order. (My lovely wife and I really enjoyed ourselves out in the Gulf.)
Winds are against us so we'll be motoring up the ICW. There's a problem with one of the bridges across our route. It's under construction and can only open half way. It should be enough, but you never know.
We've had some very high winds and nearby tornadoes. This marina has provided decent protection so it was worth the stop.
Can't wait for the northern blast of cold Arctic air to go away and for the warm Florida weather to return.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
