The trip has been exciting, sometimes scary, especially when the weather turned nasty, and very , very lonesome.

Tomorrow also marks my 72nd birthday, which I'll celebrate by washing some clothes, drinking a tall Margaretta, and having a chocolate cookie instead of birthday cake.

Still have more than 700 miles to go just to reach Miami, so at this rate, it will take another two or more weeks. I lost 4 days to bad weather, which resulted in my sitting out storms. So I just thought I would let you folks know that I'm not dead yet.

Gary,

Way to go man, keep it up. Happy Birthday to you on October 17. Post of your progress when you can. I'm on my way to the Keys as well so I'll be looking for Saturday's Child and a smooth singing skipper.

Enjoy...Mike

Re: I'm still alive...

WHAT!??? Not dead yet?!? Dangit - and all this time I've been waiting for that keyboard your promised in your will. Oh well, will just have to trade you the bulldog for it.

Well, dearest Gary my friend, I am typing this from Desoto Point, FL... basically Bradenton, FL. We have been anchored off the reserve for some nights now. Blowing about 15, maybe 20. Temps about 75 now, dropping to 72. All the hatches open. A gorgeous day. Here was our sunset:



BTW - happy birthday! Look forward to seeing ya soon!

Lonely? Enjoy the peace, Gary.
You're FREE!! You're sailing, beholden to no one. I can't imagine how that feels.

Keep going, and enjoy.
