Heading WEST Across Florida

 

Nothing but WIDE open water……the sun is setting and the wind is picking up…love that free energy : ) Tim did a fantastic job today and thank you Jesus for the PERFECT weather .

The journey continues…..as we glide along the waterway and listen to the soothing sounds rushing along the hulls, we can’t help but be in awe. Beautiful birds run along the shoreline keeping constant awareness of the alligators just beneath the surface. Love bugs have found a new home clinging to our decks and the “locks” that seemed terrifying yesterday are now apart of our daily routine. It’s funny that the things we are most afraid of are eliminated once we have experienced them. As we witness another glorious sunset and we anchor for the night we are surrounded by tarpon and the sounds of wild peacocks in the distance. I am so grateful for this experience, to see life from our little sailboat. It is so different from a road trip. It’s a much slower pace, marked with breathtaking scenery and an opportunity to just listen ……
