God Bless the USA!!!

We arrived in Florida on Tuesday 2/21/2017…after 8 hours of rocking and rolling across the Atlantic Ocean!!  What a journey – it started out choppy with 2-3’ swells and ended with 4-6’ breaking waves the last 15 miles…UGH!!  We knew the ride would be rough but based on the long-range forecast we decided Tuesday was the better crossing opportunity.  The next window wasn’t suggested until early March.

There were a few opportunities for photos along the way and I will post the pics later.  We are still gathering and sharing photos with our buddy boats Rascal’s Retreat, Moni Jean and Lady Catherine however I wanted to let everyone know that we are docked safely in the North Palm Beach Marina waiting for the predicted downpour of rain!  But hey, we have our cell phones, wifi and credit cards back on the domestic plans…waHOOO!!!

We will use today to determine our next direction of travel, wait out the expected rain cycle and make a to-do list for boat maintenance…the glamorous life of trawler living!!  And yes, I kissed the ground, hugged a flag pole and we ate cheap Mexican for dinner…nothing says “Welcome to America” like Mexican food!!

Have a Super Great Day and be thankful for the ordinary!!
