clear

Marlow ExplorerWe were underway at 6:25AM. A 70' Marlow Explorer was at the entrance to the harbor. (see photo. The tide was rising and the winds light. We made it out of shallow Terra Ceia bay without incident and the sounder never dropped below zero. On past Anna Maria, and Sarasota. At Vienna the water turns a beautiful shade of turquoise. We saw a few dolphins but none jumped out of the water. We made most of the bridges without any delay. At the Gasparilla causeway we were close expecting the bridge to swing at 3:00PM. But it didn/t swing so we called the bridgemaster on the radio and he said we had to wait for the next opening at 3:15PM. Apparently if you don? call him before 3:00PM you are out of luck. At 5:11PM we arrived at Burnt Store Marina on Charlotte Harbor. Hans & Ria were there to meet us. As before tieing up to piles takes a bit of practice but the varish was spared. Dinner was at the Snook Inn about 15 miles drive south. It was a dumpy place beside the water. The floors sloped so it was like being on a boat. The food was fantastic. Saturday night was buffet night with all kinds of sea food and roast beef.
