After 3 months off the boat, we are starting the next leg of the loop. We were sidetracked by the purchase of a house in Dunedin,fl and the emptying and listing of our house in Illinois.
We pulled out of the Dunedin municipal marina on 3/29/12 and headed for Gulfport marina (recommended by joe apicella). After a quiet night, today we headed for Sarasota. It was a beautiful day on the water...light chop in Tampa bay and beautiful blue skies. Duke had a different opinion of the trip. Every time a big boat pased us, we were "waked" and duke panicked. He refused to eat....and that is unusual.
Tonight we had dinner with Annie Wieland Keefe at oleary's next to Marina Jacks here in Sarasota. We met Annie at the rendezvous at joe wheeler state park last fall. It was great to see her again. It's great to be back on the water!
