We had about a week of amazing weather to get across the gulf to Apalachicola. Now we're getting weeks of thunderstorms, rain, and wind. As a result we don't feel comfortable about getting from here to New Orleans -- the Mississippi Sound is really the gulf. Yes, there are barrier islands but they are small. Moreover they are 8 miles off shore. The way things keep shaping up we might get a good day in followed by days of no-go days... it could take us weeks to get to NOLA.

The Wharf is just jammed with boats right now. Last summer brought a bunch of hurricanes that wiped most other marinas out. Anyone with a sportfishing boat needed a new home. This was it.
By the way, we had to get out of slip 48 by Friday. Still no one there. Seemed kinda obvious to us -- we didn't want to travel because of weather. Good odds neither do they.
