|Cookies for breakfast!! Thanks At Ease!!
After two weeks docked in Fort Myers we tossed the lines on Sunday (1/10/20201) morning at 10:10 for our <20 mile journey to Fort Myers Beach. Now don’t get me wrong…we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay!! It was like a family reunion with people you REALLY LIKE!! We walked many times to Legacy Marina…Have Another Day, Kissed Some Frogs, At Ease, Hearken, Light & Salty, Liberty (I’m sure I’ve missed a few) were all docked there!! We talked, walked, laughed, and shared a few snacks and a whole lot of memories!!! A mini reunion of the socially distanced type – we didn’t care – it was just so nice to see everyone and catch up with how life was rolling!!
Meanwhile back at the Fort Myers Yacht Basin we continued the party…DunRunnin’, Mutual Fun, Serenity, Corporate Approved, Sweet Stuff, Rollin’ Tide, Forever Young, Best Mate, Tango Papa, Salty (the Bayliner), Magic and Ripsnorter…folks just coming and going! I’ve said many, many times “The best thing about boating (or looping) is that you can go where you’ve never been and see a familiar face or hear a familiar voice.” And it’s so true!!
So with all the visiting and the fabulous weather for long, long walks – where we can always solve our troubles in 4-5 miles – I am sorry for the lack of blog update. But I’m trying to be more in the moment and honestly, you don’t want to hear all about the ins and outs of our visiting!! Just know, we are having a great time (despite a little chill in the air) and looking forward to our continued boating adventures.
We were docked by 1:00 pm at Gulf Ways Marine in Fort Myers Beach!! It’s the magical place where we dropped off the dinged props a couple weeks ago and tomorrow our spare props will be replaced by the newly tuned & straightened props!! We are #2 in line for the haul-out and if all goes well we will be underway to Marco Island by Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning. In the meantime, we are enjoying full sunshine, the smell of seafood and sound of live music (compliments of Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grill) while we are securely tied to a fixed dock and can’t leave the property because the gate is locked!! Security is the best!!!
Stay healthy and God Bless
