Scott & Sue join Judge Smails at the Yacht Club

Yes! We've become social members of the Clearwater Yacht Club. For a trifle each month we can use the bar, resturant, showers, pool and wifi. It is about a 50 yard walk from our boat so it seems like a good deal.

On Tuesday we went for a day sail. This is something we NEVER do! Why would we? We're usually going some place. There was a nice, 10 knot north wind that allowed us to reach out past the 3 mile limit and flush our heads. We also took the opportunity to see how this Enee Marie hove to. She did great. We drifted easily down wind at about 1 knot and could take care of our head business without dropping sails. Sailed back to Clearwater at over 7 knots! I guess the bottom is still pretty clean. Anyway, great to feel the boat move under us again.

It is warming up here in central florida. The days are low 90's and low 70's at night. We are sleeping ok with our wind scoop and fans but expect that to become a bigger chanllenge as we head into summer.

Going to explore St. Pete tomorrow and take in the Dali Museum.

No pics today...camera is being bad.

I take that last to be an obscure reference from either Caddy Shack or Giligan's Island...

Andrea said...

That was totally Caddy Shack.
If a scruffy man shows up with some Mateus and Kentucky Blue Grass Sensemilia, use extreme caution - hes has plastic expolsives.

There's plenty more obscure references where that came from. : )

Andrea's comment makes me talk like Bill Murray!

so the llama says to me, "There'll be no money, but on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness...so I got that going for me" . . . which is nice.
