It’s been a tough couple of weeks…

since leaving the boatyard, all related to family crises back at home. We had planned to spend a few days making our way to Fort Myers Beach, spending time at some of our favorite anchorages: Cayo Costa, Don Pedro, Ding Darling. However, after a day at anchor spent mostly on my cell phone, we sped straight to Fort Myers Beach to grab a mooring ball, where Ron could sit safe and comfortable while I flew home.

Our day-long trip, once we left the canal, was filled with dolphins swimming in our slipstream, entertaining us with their flips and jumps for 20-30 minutes at a time. And then there was this guy: Jumping dolphin! What a ham! The dolphin visits brought us so much joy, such interest, such distraction, on a day that was filled with worry, concern and frustration. The natural world rules again!

  1. I am a new subscriber. Are yu the folks with a Pararie 36 Trawler? We own one and I believe that I saw a reference to this boat in a search that I was doing for other Pararie owners.
    Please let me know.
    Thank you.


    • Yes, “Prairie Dog” is a Prairie 36 trawler! We cruise coastal SW Florida in winter, then store her on the hard during the summer while we sail the northern Great Lakes aboard our GulfStar 36 sailboat. What is the name of your Prairie and where do you cruise her?


  2. Hi guys, welcome back to sunny, warm, calm gentle winds – hmmmm, well at least Welcome Back! Wondered what your plans were for February. We are here until March 1. The Cruisers' Net party will be on Wed. Feb. 21. Roy
