Jackie and I are blushing. We are blessed to have Ted as a friend and look forward to many more good times together. I do however keep my good shoes hidden from everybody. Once burned as they say.

Greetings,
Mr. OC. Well, I, for one, am glad you're almost "home". I don't think I could have suffered through another week of your "adventures". It should be against the law to have so much fun...Just sayin'

Oh, you've arrived! Well then, that explains the sudden visit of the Debaucherita's Biker Gang and why they were in such a hurry to be dropped off in Ft. Myers.

That's a good location. Restaurant on site is very busy in season. Easy access to great daytime cruising areas. My condo is up by the US41 bridges we run the CC down to the restaurant for lunch.

How do you get around on land while wintering there?

My home is in Fort Myers. Will fly up to Maryland Thursday to get my pickup, go to Marthas Vineyard, Massachusetts for Thanksgiving, and drive back to Fort Myers.

In the mean time, Enterprise car rental will come pick you up.

Yes, this year, we rented many times from Enterprise as we were in many locations they were the only game in town.

Nice trip, Ted - enjoyed following along. Where did you anchor up or tie up Saturday night on Lake O? Or did you get across to Moore Haven?

Last Monday afternoon I was down in Palm Coast visiting our TF friend "Donna" aboard her new Southerly. Marine Traffic showed you were in the 'hood, so we tried shouting you up on 16 and 13. No joy. Sorry to have missed you this time on your way through Jacksonville.

Ever wonder how safe the marina is? Not here. They're 2 slips over.

Have a friend with a dock just before the Ortona lock.

Yes, I missed Donna on Tuesday when I came through. She had to work. Hopefully we can meet up in Fort Pierce in February.

I see that they were all looking in the opposite direction from Bucky.
