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!
