|The Bahama Travelers at Staniel Cay|
After an overnight stay at Legacy, doing some work to get the boat ready for storage and picking up a rental car, I leave to go up the Coloosahatchee River to make the 4pm Franklin Lock. Due to the low water in Lake Okeechobee, they are only opening the lock twice a day. Judy is driving the car to meet me and do some errands. The distance is some 40 miles so I won't arrive until 8pm after traversing 2 locks single handed.
The next morning on the 26th, the fine people at River Forrest Yachting Center pulled the boat. As we left the Silver Foxes, the bottom was being pressure washed, in preparation for her being stored inside a hurricane proof building for the summer.
Signing off-Starting at Mitch's house we have traveled 1446 statute miles to the Bahamas and back. Hope you have enjoyed our written adventures and for those of you that have been, perhaps the memories were revived. For those that hope to go someday, I hope it gives you additional incentive. For others, I hope you have been able to picture the remoteness and beauty of the Bahamas. It is truly amazing! Thanks for your indulgence
