Day One Leaving Longboat Key


We enjoyed our first day on the vessel as we departed Longboat Key Marina after  2 1/2 years.  Crew is Kevin Hopper and Ed Daniel.  Ed is a college buddy and experienced boater.  Wife, Debbie is bonding with our grandchild Ella.  She will join us in Charleston, SC in a few weeks with Ed's wife Barb.

Today we traveled 65 miles to Tween Waters Resort on Captiva Island Fl.  Great weather, 80 degrees and calm winds. We chose to travel in the Gulf rather than the protected and slow Intra Coastal Waterway (ICW)  We enjoyed a swim at the pool complete with steel drum band and later a beautiful sunset.  Bar B Q night at the restaurant was very good. hope we have this kind of a day as we travel to Canada.
