Russ watches the weather. He'd gotten very good at reading and predicting travel days. And he promised these next few days would be awesome: Windless, with the exception of afternoon breezes that always seem to rise on the Gulf. Yesterday, arriving in Bay St. Louis, winds were up higher than anticipated. Despite the marina being behind a hefty break wall, we bounced a little all night long.
|Good morning, Gulf of Mexico|
As it turned out, the day was awesome. Bumpy getting out, and a little choppy once we got to the gulf. But within an hour the water laid down, and 1 - 2 foot seas turned into 6 in ripples most of the day.

Engine started right up, radar worked all day, AIS showed all the tows around us. Everything worked like it was supposed to. I love it when a plan comes together.
