The Good & the Bad & the Ugly!! 😉

It really has been uneventful out here since we left on Tuesday, therefore no Bad or Ugly! 🙂

Southbound in Hawk’s Channel today, Friday June 20th, destination Marathon FL. It’s another calm, warm, no wind day. Can you say “Motor-boat”?? Grrrrr….

Marathon Bound – Tammy says…No wonder Columbus set out to prove the earth wasn’t flat!!

Yesterday as we left Miami anchorage, it was the picture perfect sunny, calm and absolutely beautiful morning on Biscayne Bay.

We motored out into ‘Big Blue’ though Biscayne Channel Inlet, also known as Stiltsville Channel.

After lunch it became a bit more exciting with the squalls surrounding and following us. We paid close attention and proceeded with our safety ‘protocol’ concerning foul weather: life jackets, foul weather gear, reefing sails and  battening down the hatches. The extra crew looked at me with questioning eyes as I pulled out gear and doled out orders…Preparation & Precautions.

You NEVER know when it could get ugly and it’s better to be safe than sorry! The sky looked creepy and we just weren’t taking any chances!

As my friend Ellen stated on FB…we have “precious cargo” onboard…her son and my daughter.

Safety is #1 onboard OWT!…we will keep them safe!! 🙂

With 55.4 nm under our keel we arrived at our calm and quiet Rodriguez Key anchorage in time to make a nice dinner and enjoy a fabulous sunset!!
