We are at Homeport Marina. Stopped at fuel Dick and filled up and then got all tied up in our slip. Gave the boat a good rinse down and then went to grab a bite at Luluís. We knew it was busy but had no idea it would be THAT busy. There was a 3.5 hour wait for a table. There were 232 reservations ahead of us!
We managed to snag 4 seats at the bar and ate there.

Everybody is tired and have already turned in. It was a long day and will be an even longer one tomorrow. We are going all the way home tomorrow. You know how people will put babies in the car and take them for a ride to get them to sleep? Well, thatís me on the boat! We start cruising and thereís the hum of the engines and the sounds of the water and Iím OUT. So I had a nice long nap again today so Iím not tired now.

Here are a few pictures of the day.

Might want to use a condom, especially if the USCG is hiding near the fuel dock.

We left Houma about 2 weeks ago, now at Rosemary beach with family. This weekend we return by car to Palafox marina and in the boat head east, once we get to Apalachicola we'll head back towards home, slowly with lots of stops.

We are waiting to go through the Rigolets bridge.
Mobile Bay started out somewhat ok but got pretty rough the further we went.
That wasn’t fun but at least rain stopped and eventually the sun came out.
It’s calmed down some in the last hour or so.
Found a new leak in the boat! Woohoo.

Almost home!!!!! How was Mississippi Sound? That had to be rather nasty too. Wind has laid down some, Lake P shouldn't be bad with you being somewhat on the lee side. Congrats on you bringing her home in somewhat dicey conditions! BTW, crawfish prices have dropped by 25% this week!

Top. It appears one of the flybridge drains is plugged up and water is coming inside.
At least thatís where we THINK itís coming from.
Itís a pretty significant leak.

I donít know how big the swells were but Iíd guess a good 5ft. I was sitting inside where it was dry and warm and I was watching out the back window.waves were crashing into the cockpit. When weíd roll a bit to one side, I could just see a wall of water out of the cockpit. The boat handled it all great.
