The cruising community can be very different too... Secluded anchorages in far off countries infrequently visited can at times get boring. So when a new yacht arrives and drops anchor it's all hands to the dinghy to go find out what they're about, invitation to drinks, help sort out he local geography - becoming best friends in 24 hours. And then next day moving on knowing you'll never see those people again in life....

There's still a community... But instead of giving a hand because they have helped you, you gotta give a hand to anyone you meet to earn the karma points to get assistance when needed somewhere else by different folks.

Hehe! Yeah, Fatty is my English Bulldog. Worthless fat animal, I tell ya. Love her though.

We see a good bit of transients too, but not as much as say the keys or other locales further south of here. St pete seems more a place to recharge your batteries than a hub on your way through (like Marathon, for example).

Just my opinion of course.

Take care,

Brian
