Upcoming events

The weekend is upon us and I have limited boating news. The weather is back to being reasonably warm during the day so I hope to get out on the St Johns and do some boating this weekend, if we can have blue skies instead of today's grey clouds.

The 20th anniversary is coming next month, we will have a private dinner in the customary fashion with fine foods paired with even finer Ports and wines. Never fear, a large do is in final planning stages for 02 April. What that means is that printed invitations are going out to our friends and family which hopefully will make up for not having a proper wedding and reception back in February 1991.

The event will be held in the Astor Room at the Florida Yacht Club, there will be food and the music will be provided by Freudian Slip. We are excited to have acquired the services of such a fine band, usually we just hire a one man band like Mark Hart from  the Tradewinds Bar in St Augustine.  But our party has to be a special one and we wanted to have diverse music for dining and dancing.

By the way, Mark Hart is an incredible performer and has been a good friend to us over the years. Be sure to stop in and see him do his happy hour show, it is a wonderful way to see St Augustine. I hope this link works to hear a sample song.

As usual for me, I look forward to some wonderful weekends on the Barco Sin Vela and having fun with our friends, no matter where they be.

Please stay healthy, and I hope everyone has a wonderful Mid January weekend!

They say the first twenty are the hardest...the next twenty go down a bit easier. Congrats - fair winds/following seas!

Buck, K&C, LL;
Thanks, everyone. We are just glad to not have the rolly seas that seem to affect other marriages/relationships.

Sometimes we eat the bear... and bear meat is good with a fine Cabernet.

Good Luck to all of you, too!
