I would if she ever woke up!! Never thought a fat English Bulldog would be a good boat dog, but I'll be darned if she isn't! SHe stands watch with everyone all night long (and curls in their lap, of course).

Truly, a hidden secret is West Coast of FL sailing.

Brian,

Great pictures.

When are you posting the "How I got to do it" thread? I want to read it over about 100 times.

Regards,
Brad

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

Looks like a great trip CD, and what a feast! Thanks for the write up and all the pics, warm weather and water look pretty good from here.

Great pics...I'm envious! The 'Queen' (a non-sailor) and I will be spending Jan., Feb. and Mar. in Key Largo. We were in K.L. last Jan. and loved it. Wont have a boat there but spent some time with the friendly folks at the Upper Keys Sailing Club last year and hope to renew our friendships.
Anyone in the Keys area looking for crew contact me.....I'll bring the sandwichs and beer. jimtheartist (at) gmail (dot) com I hope its OK to put this on the forum....

Thanks for the report. I stayed in Marathon (ashore) a few years ago and loved it. We dined a couple of times at a marina restaurant. Good food, nice people. I sailed today in typical November weather: cool, breezy, rain. Loved it, but I think you've got better weather.

That's why I'm trying to hook up some consulting work in the Tampa area.
