Sandy has passed and all is well


The winds have now calmed down quite a bit as Sandy moves north of where we are here in Jacksonville, Florida. Our first hurricane, so it is kind of exciting. No rain to speak of — just a lot of wind. We will be thinking of everyone north of us as the hurricane comes your way. Stay safe!

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26th to SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27th — DAY 66 to 67 (Hanging out in Jacksonville, Florida while we ride out Sandy)

The last few days was chores around the boat and keeping an eye on things as the heavy winds were on us for the last two days.  All fared well, and we will be back on the water tomorrow (Sunday).
