|Part one, the beach to St. James City
While in Canada we boated to Henry's, which is a little seafood place on a little island. They had docks big enough for boats like us. We docked, ate, then headed out and anchored for the night in a nearby bay.
Today we boated to St. James City. We wanted to go to a restaurant we ate at years ago, when we were doing the RV thing, Woody's. We anchored out, hopped in the dinghy, and went up the little canal (Monroe Canal). We tied off on the wall right in front of the restaurant.

Woody's didn't disappoint. We split a salad, conch fritters, and a grouper reuben, one of our favorites.
From there got back to inQuest, hauled up the anchor, and headed for Pelican Bay off of Cayo Costa. We spent a night there about a year ago; the first night we "officially" spent on the loop.
In the continuing saga of "new boat blues" we had noticed that out port engine's battery was always low of charge. Russ knew the batteries needed to be replaced anyway, so we did that back in Naples. However, even with the new batteries, when we start the engines the port battery is still low. This morning, when we started out, the engine wouldn't even kick over. He jumped it, but now we have yet another mystery on our hands.
We plan on staying here for a couple of nights. It will be interesting if we need to call Sea Tow to get us to our next destination.
