We decided not to leave until 11:00 this morning due to the incoming tides. So, I cooked a big country breakfast and we had Chris and Marie join us on our boat for breakfast. We had several things to do before leaving the docks but we did leave around 11:00. It was a beautiful day on the water. The sky was blue and the sun was shining bright. We only had to wear light jackets. It was such a change for us. We kept saying how beautiful the day was. We continued moving our boat along the ICW with Spirit until about 5:00. We found a nice little creek called Red Bird Creek where we have anchored for the night.
Marie called to say that she was cooking dinner for us. What a nice surprise for me! We paddled our dinghy over to their boat about 7:00 and ate beef tenderloin, fried zucchini, and potatoes. We were all tired from the 45 miles we traveled today so we were back on our boat by 9:30. This was one of our best days on the water thus far! Naturally with no wind, we did no sailing. That was okay, also.
