After a day off to rest and visit with friends, the Captain and his crew (sister Robin and brother-in-law Alan)were back on the ICW today. Here is an early morning report from the Captain:
Looks like a beautiful day and fewer bridges to slow us down so we should cover some ground today. Fueled up yesterday which was kind of frightening. Good thing we won't need to do that again for a couple thousand miles.
Went by Tiger and Greg Norman's houses. Wow, I'm in the wrong business.
Things got a bit less settled as the day wore on, with gusts up to 45knots. But the crew was warm, safe and DRY inside the Pilot House: the bright side to the dark side of boating!
Anchored tonight just south of Melbourne, FL at Mile 925 of the ICW after traveling 70 miles. That means that Freedom is 925 miles from the Chesapeake Bay.
