Sunrise

Was a beautiful sunrise on the GUlf of Mex this morning. The camera just can't do it justice, but I thought I would share it anyway

That's a great photo. It seems the sun always looks better from the water.

Everything looks better from the water.

Whether I sell my sailboat or not, We are still heading that way from Galveston Bay. As soon as we get some weather breaks right after the 1st of the year we will be on the wet road. I will still take on an odd job or two offshore but definitely nothing regular.
We will be taking out time visiting friends and family in Slidell, Gulfport and Biloxi. Prolly leave early to mid-Jan. to Slidell. Prolly get to Gulfport/Biloxi area and hang out until mid-March. Then from there I figure we will be in North Al./NE Ms. by Mid-April. My main goal is to get out of the coastal Hurricane area well before hurricane season. After that - no hurry.
We still have the sailboat mentality "It's not the destination - it's the journey".

Hey Tony, missed you at the Sunset Grill last Sat evening...the shrimp cocktail was delicious, the drinks watery. I told Judy we can't eat like that often when we both quit working & start crusing. Anyway, what's the big trawler on Dock 13 closest to shore, the big beefy one?

FYI, we're planning to move Waterford Marina in the fall & follow your wake towards FL as early as we can in '13.

Dont know which trawler, might be a new one in the marina.
Definitely sorry I missed the festivities.

Great that u also are going to be on the move. Always nice to have company along the way. Hopefully we will meet more members on the trip. There are a few in Houma that I Definitely want to meet.
Where is your final destination?

Actually decent weather is forecast.....some clouds with scattered showers.
The old saying "red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning" is only half right.

The red sky at night part comes from the idea that the sun sets in the west and the weather travels from west to east. The red color is from a lot dust in the air caused by dry weather. So, we see that at night and that means the dry air in the west will be upon us tonite and tomorrow.
Fairly good assumption, mostly correct.
On the other side of the coin "red sky in the morning" in the eastern sky means that the dry air has passes already and the assumption is made that it will now change to wet weather. Bad Assumption.

Anyway, thats the best story I can come up with and I'm stickin' to my story. LOL
