Ugh.

Easy. Throw the cat in the attic with the squirrel. May the best rodent win.

This sailboat has been stuck for 2 days. Must not have a Boat US or Sea Tow membership!
Last night when the tide was low it was leaning over big time. The locals here said someone tried to pull him off yesterday but was too small and not enough power.

This shrimp boat just almost took out the front of my boat! His anchor was about 6-12 inches away. That was scary for a minute!

Sounds like it is time to get out of there before anything else happens. Have a nice run to Panama city.

No joke! I like this place though. I’d like to come back when we have more time and stay a few days and explore.
We’ll be headed out within the hour.

Hmmm, after 10 months I have about 6 dead cockroaches (Palmetto bugs)
I think they starved to death

It is a beautiful day in the gulf. It’s slick calm. The fog has burned off.

Enjoy, enjoy.
As the old saying goes, "You may but pass this way once."

I would suggest you take lots of pictures underway but just how many pictures of empty water do you really need?

Glad you lost the fog, it can be unnerving. We were bring a previous boat from Seattle to LA and spent 30 hours in a fog so thick at times we could not see the tip of the bow. Almost hit a whale that was snoozing on the surface. The fog lifted for a moment and we saw the whale and made a hard turn. We came within about 50 feet of it. You would think they could hear us since that boat had twin Detroits in it.

We made it to Panama City. All tied up and got the boat washed/rinsed down. Now we are getting cleaned up and are going to head out on foot to food and bar hope.
It is just a beautiful day.
