On the Water Again!

And it feels great! We flew to Jacksonville on the 4th after a long visit with family and friends. It was nice to be home for a while and to enjoy a few times out on skis and the rest of what home has to offer but I'm happy to be moving south on the boat again. We reprovisioned on Saturday and were disappointed to hear about a bad weather forecast for today, so we slept in. I woke up, checked the all the sources and we decided it didn't sound so bad. The tide was running out the St. John's River all the way to the Atlantic and then washed us down the Intracoastal almost all the way to St. Augustine. We picked up a mooring in the new mooring field (pretty tough in the wind and current; ask Lisa and Dave. Good job, Sally.)

The only noteworthy part of the whole day was lunch. Sally decided to use up some expired mac and cheese (IGA, for you future provisioners). It was so awful we made a note of it in the boat log, then went out for dinner at Harry's in St. Augustine, a place Dave and Lisa had told us about. Well, they were already out of the Christmas special they recommended, but we found something almost as good to wash that lunch taste out. And we got back to the boat just before the rain that we had been watching all day arrived. Life is good. Capt. Jeff
