Another Loop Completed

We headed out today as the sun rose.

All day we dodged thunderstorms, but thankfully they always stayed ahead of us or behind us creating some beautiful rainbows.

For our last day on the water we were rewarded with sights of lots of dolphins, several big spotted rays, and a great Loggerhead sea turtle sighting. The waterway was busy with lots of other boats – more than we expected for a Friday.

We knew we were approaching home when we saw the Palm Island Ferry and the bright turquoise roof of our friends’ condo. Then surprise, Chuck & Michelle were on their balcony waving to us.

We pulled into Cape Haze Marina and completed our south Florida loop. Chuck came over to catch our lines, tour the boat, and chat. He left & we got busy securing lines & packing things up. Then Chuck was back with 2 cold bottles of water & 2 pieces of fresh-out-of-the-oven peach pie for us. Big smiles – we dove right in & devoured the delicious pie. Now that’s a homecoming we never expected. Thanks Michelle.

Hot, tired, but so happy to be eating fresh homemade peach pie.

Tim drove down & shuttled Rich back to get our car. As we unloaded, Mary came over with our mail. Such great friends and neighbors. We are truly blessed.
