Sunday morning the sun is hiding behind the clouds and it is cool. We are entering another cut (man made dug out ditch) that makes the ICW complete so we will travel 20 miles in a protected area, no wind, yeah!!
This is a unique area to cruise and is referred to as "The Grand Canyon". It is flanked by high sand dunes that present a much different scenic view. But I get bored when not needed for navigating so I end up down below and do a thorough cleaning of the inside of the boat. What better way to spend the time? It is kinda fun to be bored with this!!
Monday dawns as another beautiful, sunny, breezy day as we rest in this marina. It is a very special day because Erik was born 27 years ago, so here I sit on the bow chatting on a 3-way family call. We plan to head out tomorrow so a quick trip to another grocery is on the to do list. But Florida marinas are more expensive and offer much less service so we will have minimal access to courtesy cars from now on. But the looper magic prevails and people who love to cruise offer to be harbor hosts if they live close to marinas. So my new friend Greg Vernon (that is Mrs. Vernon with an unusual first name) happily agrees to take a run to the store. My focus is to stock up on Ginger Ale in case we find ourselves in choppy water again.
