12/31 We depart Sanibel Island anchorage with a lingering fog. By the time we hit the Gulf the fog lifted and we had a wonderful cruise down to Marco Island. If you remember back in our adventure on Lake Erie we meet a wonderful couple in Grand River, Ohio. Well we meet up with them at their home in Marco Island. We rekindled a new friendship and had a great time with Pierre and Sweeder. New Years Eve on the beach was a great way to start our time together. Marie and I were very touched by their hospitality and generosity and hope to see them again soon.
1/6/2022 A NEW YEAR HAS ARRIVED! We depart Marco and we take a nice slow cruise down to Everglades City. We stay out on anchor so we can get in during the right tide. Yup the water in these parts is shallow and the currents run quick. Well I guess that is all of Florida!
1/7 We head into Everglades City at 7:00am, Honey wake uppppppp😂! The wind is going to start to blow and we figured we would spend it safely tied up. We had a great visit from one of Marie’s colleagues Jane Early and her husband Jim. We went on an airboat ride, had lunch and even visited city hall. Our next moves will be down to Cape Sable and then onto the Keys. Not sure of our departure date yet as a second blow of wind is soon to follow.
THANKS TO ALL WHO ARE FOLLOWING US!
