Getting ready to set sail

We have a new guest on board for our next trip. Race Mahoney who has just taken up sailing and has had a class will be joining us. What he doesn’t know in experience he makes for in enthusiasm. We went out for an overnight anchorage to get the feel of how M’Aingeal is set up and I was pleasantly surprised at how laid back everyone was when we realized we had no propane gas in the tanks. The bratwurst could be grilled but the potatoes were seriously undercooked and warm. Pat kept on giving Race some to taste. Race would eat them, nod and say maybe a little while longer. Colleen came along for the ride as well.

Packing is always a pain considering which hats to bring.

Florida has plenty of beauty and I’m not just talking about myself. I hope to have many interesting anchorages and scenes to picture. I will miss waking cup to this scene in the morning.
