Skinny Dippin's July 4th Holiday Pics

So, we didn't make Lookout or Ocracoke.* Many factors held us back from wandering too far from home.* Both weather and technical difficulties were questionable enough to stay close.* We did get some great experience navigating from the lower helm in blinding rain....no pics of that though...too busy trying to not fall off the boat.

Here are some shots of what we DID do!**

Very nice...looks like a great time on the water. Love the pooch shot. Too bad that blowboat got in the way of your nice sunset shot. ;-)

Thanks!* We were at anchor with four blowboats and another trawler that evening.** When we got to 11 people we reconvened on Skinny Dippin's deck for frosty beverages.

Tivo(first dog)*hijacked my blog and made his own entry about the week!

Actually, she doesn't like the term at all... She is the First Mate.

I missed that the question was to Bess and not to me asking if I was GonzoF1 at another board. I forgot that was my screen name here. My bad.

Bess and I are husband and wife on Skinny Dippin' (Hope that clears it up)

Thanks for the Birthday wishes!* I do prefer Mate over Admiral.**She is half mine and I'm at the helm about half the time too.*I am navigator, handle the lines and anchor duty.* First Mate is a title I have earned...and adore.* *
