Nearly a week went by as we waited for our weather window to cross the gulf stream. Imagine trying to cross the Mississippi river for 35 miles, but one that is out in the ocean. A current that averages 3.5 mph carries you north while you are trying to get to a tiny island due east. The current must be corrected for, and if the wind is not right you will find yourself in a place one would never want to experience. SO, patiently we have waited. While waiting, here are some photos of how we’ve passed time…All the stickers we have been hoarding over the months have found a home. Darbie is now tastefully decorated.Louise is pretty cool…even Reggie thinks so Where would we be in this world without SIMRAD Milkdud (our inflatable dinghy) or Darbie (the kayak) in the future possibly? This is a close up of a little plane that was sitting in a parking lot, it had been burnt to pieces. Welcome to the funny farm. Milkdud wasn’t sexy enough for this dock. We found some mangroves to tie her to instead. SOY DE VEGA BAJA!!!! Katie and our friend Brett, playing on workout equipment in the park Hmmm…. we came across an Indian Festival. Got educated. Little girl wants to take Reggie for ride. Reggie wants to eat little girl. Anchorage we enjoyed for 3 nights. Right outside the Dinner Key Marina, and a just row away from land. My comfy place in the morning. Where the coffee is sipped and the book is read. “Home Sailor”. The sequel to the book “Dove” by Robin Lee Graham, which was the first book Katie and I read to get inspired. The sequel is about Robin’s life post his 5 year circumnavigation. He and his wife move to Montana to homestead. Montana. That’s where I will go. Little surfer boy? A wind scoop that my dad gave us. It kind of worked. It’s old. But it looks cool. AKA jet fuel Sooo it’s kind of fun to stop traffic.
