Florida!

I write this as I’m cruising east on Santa Rosa Sound. Straight as an arrow for the next ten miles or so, with a barrier island to my right and the mainland on my left.

Yesterday I was underway about 8:00 from my island anchorage. It was a bit choppy for the first hour or two, then smooth sailing. This is the bridge to Dauphin Island

Then about 40 miles across Mobile Bay

And into the ICW on the east side

I stopped for an early dinner at a dockside bar

And found a nice secure spot to anchor in Orange Beach AL

This morning I came through Perdido Key to cross into Florida

The sand is very white.

It’s overcast today. Probably warmer than the last couple of days, but damp and a bit raw. There isn’t another boat out on the sound. Guess this is a summer hot spot…
