Aria reaches Florida
Just a quick note to say we are now in Pensacola, Florida. After two days and nights in the Gulf, and not making much easward progress, we headed up to the Ditch at the Calcesieu River, coming back into the Gulf at Lake Borgne, LA for another overnighter and up to Pensacola. I'll post a more detailed account in my blog here as soon as I get a chance to write it up.

Good to hear from you kiddo. I know it must be horrible out there but some of us need to make sacrifices for the common good. We feel for you in your hour of misery. :) :p :)

Hey Beezer your right down the road from me all that southeast wind we had last week was a drag. Glad your ok! Once again if you need anything drop me a note.
Wecome to sunny Florida:)

PS If you think you might come in the Pass at Destin You really need to call me. If you come in here or go back out and follow the bouys you will run aground in the middle of the channel or hit bottom on the bar.

I'd never heard of a bird flying into the cabin and spending the night before, but here's a picture of him, dilligently watching the Barometer before he flew out, and then returned to perch on the wicker basket (bottom right) for the night.

John...was the bird tasty???

I bet not as much as tasty as the Bald Eagle you ate last time....
