This is the season I really enjoy here in North Florida. The days are in the eighties and there is little humidity in the air. Every morning is a great joy to watch unfold with nary a cloud in sight.
The Barco is getting a new anchor/running light on the radar arch, a new VHF radio and some airconditioning work on the forward unit. Once this is done we should be ready for hot weather operations in the river and offshore.
Speaking of offshore, I am hoping to take a trip from Mayport to St Augustine, following the coast and watching the annual Memorial Day Regatta which the North Florida Cruising Club hosts so well.
Hmmm, with further review... At least I think that there is a race. Usually is. Whatever, I am going to enjoy some cool ocean breezes and maybe tow a lure to catch a fish. This boating thing is about the Barco crew and we are very self contained.
Not too much going on otherwise, we are following the Red Wings on tv and suffering the next morning from being up too late. Very exciting to watch a team on the verge of elimination fight back so valiantly and successfully, too. Tonight, the game should be very exciting and as the Spousal Unit says, "Detroit better bring their "A" game. SWWBO will be at TPC in Ponte Vedra today, so she gets to be actively around dem stick and ball folks.
Another thing about the season is watching the boat-bound snowbirds begin their trips back home. I envy the journey and wish I was heading Northward to cool weather and tree lined waterways.
Have a nice day, wherever you may be.
