Day 268: Bokeelia, FL
Sunny and hot.
We put the boat in the water at the Bocilla Island Seaport in Bokeelia. (We walk by it every day.) We heard that many boat ramps in Florida are closed, but this one is still open. So that was easy enough and $10 away from free!
There is a canal with a boat slip here, so we will leave the boat in the water for a few days.
I feel a little guilty pleasure that we can take the boat when most people are told to stay home, but what would you do if you were in that situation? Make lemonade out of lemons, I hope!
While we were putting the boat in, we ordered a mullet basket carry out from Capt’n Cons near the boat ramp. Before Florida, I thought mullet was an 80’s hairstyle, but it’s a plentiful fish here that feeds on plants and algae. We are told it’s not great to eat. Since Capt’n Con’s sells it, I wanted to try it. It was okay but not great. Tom thought it tasted like largemouth bass.
We went for a short boat ride before dinner. We saw lots of shore birds and three dolphins.
The weather has been breezy, which really helps an otherwise hot day.
Being an introvert, I don’t mind being stuck at home. For a while. I finished another miniature sweater that I am pleased with. I have knitted six of these, and I am finally happy with the pattern I developed.
I still haven’t started the I Claudius BBC video series that someone left behind in the women’s bathroom at the last campground we stayed.
