|We started at the top and worked our|
way down to Mandarin. Where Russ is.
This was the idea of the crew from About Time. They just had some systems repaired and want to make sure they were good to go. Originally the plan was get to this creek, anchor for the afternoon, then head back. Now both of us are thinking we'll stay overnight and head back in the morning.
We still haven't made up our minds about the summer. On the one hand heading back to Longboat Key sounds like a decent idea given Cat-n-Dogs is gone. On the other, we just had a couple of 90+ degree days, and heading north, even if we couldn't cruise like we'd like to, would be cooler. There are boats named Chasin' 80 for a reason, and it ain't about age.

Really. We'll know what we're doing then. Almost certainly. I think.

Actually it's About Tim.

for several weeks for the occasional ride out and about. The bottom
is covered in seaweed and barnacles!
