While we were traveling, Freedom remained snug in her slip in Stuart, Florida. She used her time alone for a little cosmetic surgery: new varnish to her handrails, new canvas covers to protect the varnish from the hot sun, new toast colored awnings and dinghy cover, and snappy new red and toast striped cushions. She was looking fine upon our return!
Now it is time to throw off the lines and do some exploring. Tomorrow we will head west across the Okeechobee Waterway to Florida's west coast. Cruising in tandem with our sister ship Trinity, we will first head north to St. Pete, with stops planned for Ft.Myers, Sanibel Island, Useppa, & Boca Grande along the way.
I am anxious to hear the roar of the engine, see some alligators and get back into the rhythm of the Waterway.
