Re: Every day's a good day in Paradise...

There's a good possibility that I met Charmaine while performing at Sombrero Resort on Wednesday nights. There are lots of ladies in the audience there, which at times tops 80 people at the Tiki Bar. The management there wants me to stay another month, but I have too many commitments up north - maybe when and if I come back in 2014/2015.

Chef, I'll keep a keen eye posted for those "Back Creek Pirates" while heading up the bay. My fondest hope is that if they attack and board the boat they'll bring lots of rum.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone,

Gary

There are more pirates than the ones on Back Creek who will be looking for you...its just that they have the best costumes. ( Easier to sneak up on you when you look like normal sailors though)

Rum will be the order for the day.

Re: Every day's a good day in Paradise...

Sounds like you will need to add at least two weeks to your trip north just to deal with all the "pirates".

Re: Every day's a good day in Paradise...

Love dealin' with the pirates - especially those packin' bottles of rum.

Here's some photos taken a few minutes ago while sitting in the shade on the dock. This young gal, just 11 years old, is super smart, won the local spelling bee a few weeks ago, and loves to walk through the mangroves behind the marina and look for critters. She has caught so many iguanas that she has names for them, including this guy she named Humpy because of it's humped back.









She releases them every afternoon, they're almost tame, at least as tame as an iguana can get, and this particular one has been caught by her at least 50 times during the past couple years.

She lives aboard a sailboat with her dad Randy, who performs with me on Saturday nights here at the Marina Tiki Hut. Randy is an excellent guitar player and singer, performs a wide variety of songs, and is really great with Beetles tunes.

I'm really going to miss this place,

Gary

No, fousley has it right, that's a Cape George 31...

Sweet little boat, but the companionway/bridgedeck/cockpit/dodger ergonomics are brutal for someone as tall as I am, with a pair of steel rods added to my spine for good measure...

It will be a cause for celebration, indeed, when I finally get this thing to Tampa, and get to navigate this freakin' companionway for the final time... This damn boat is making me feel really, REALLY old... (grin)

Re: Every day's a good day in Paradise...

Gary,
Might be that I'll sortie out of HHS to see if I can get to within sling shot range of you if you just happen to be passing on the 23/24th.
Look for a Irwin 38 CC, with a guy that has a HUGE grin at the helm.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Re: Every day's a good day in Paradise...

Has anyone heard from Gary in the last few days? Have friends stuck Crystal River due to terrible weather which has been through here and is headed south toward the Keys. Hope he is OK.
