I’m out in the Gulf, here. Beautiful day now that the sun is out.
Dunno if you can see them, but I’m traveling in the company of two buddy boats, Trust Your Cape and Chrysalis. I finally caught up with the Looper crowd yesterday in Carabelle.
Carabelle is a cute little harbour. Should have taken some pictures. This is approaching
There were dolphins at the entrance and lots around this morning as well
There were about eight Loopers there last night, all planning to leave today. One of them, Trust Your Cape I had seen several times earlier as we traveled east. There was another Canadian boat there, Myra-Marie that was from Comox BC. They trailered their Ranger Tug to Sault Ste Marie. Cool. Had dinner out with the crews of six boats. Spent the night in a slip.
I finally gave the top of the boat a really good scrub. There was Mississippi mud on top of Chicago grime. Much better now. Was going to do an oil change on both motors but didn’t have as much oil aboard as I thought I did. Need to go shopping. My food is pretty much gone too.
Today the fleet sorted into groups. I joined the 9 knot to Steinhatchee group. We left at dawn and are due in there about 3:30.
Forecast is for excellent traveling weather for the next two days. Will be back in the ICW at Tarpon Springs Thursday or Friday.
