Sailing the Sir Francis Drake Channel in the BVIs. Having some rum at the Willey T, then dinking back to the boat to sail up to the Baths.

Sitting in the cockpit of my Morgan 33 OI while anchored in sight of Fort Jefferson at the Dry Tortugas with a tall Margaretta in my hand.

Crikey, Brad! Thats a stupid question!
I wanna be in Antigua so I am going tomorrow morning.

LOLOL

I was going to go today as the wind has come round to the NE giving me a 60 degrees close reach. Its 89 miles. Wind today is 18 knots. Tomorrow its still NE but drops to 12 knots. I have significant coral on my botties so will not have a good speed. So I reckon it will be more luxurious to wait 24 hours to do it in 12 knots than 18.

Ahhhhh the bliss of being in paradise with an open time frame to pick your weather window!

Snow? Who would wanna live there?

Should I mention I have space on my boat for girly crew. Should I put " "s around the word "Crew"?

Nah, on second thoughts, I like the "bliss" idea better

Paradise

The place where refinishing the peeled bottom on my boat is completed, splashed and sailing off into the sunset.

Just offshore in Destin, Florida - anchored, at 'CRAB ISLAND'. Sitting on an Adirondack chair on the deck, feet elevated on a cooler of ice cold beer.

A month from now, I'll be out of the Seattle rain and once again baking my black rear end beneath sweltering, unrelenting blaze of the Emerald Coast sunshine.

Thank god.

Today I would like to be anchored behind St Patrick's Island, Skerries Islands, Irish sea. This is my favorite spot for a relaxing couple of hours fishing or just watching the seals and maybe the local porpoises will come by.
High tide was a bit early,4am and still dark, so hope to catch the afternoon rise and head out about 1400.
Tidied up the boat yesterday am all set for some day trips. Need a bit more work on the inside before the overnights kick in, bit cold and damp after dark yet anyway.
Safe sailing
The bodies of two local lobster fishermen, lost 10 days ago,were recovered yesterday morning, bringing closure and some comfort to their families, May They Rest in Peace.
