Day 297: Bokeelia, FL Sunny, breezy, warm. There is a wonderful cool north breeze this morning! Just after lunch we went for a boat ride. We had to stop at the marina to fill the two gas tanks. The gas pump at the marina was self-serve. It was pretty easy to get the tanks out... Continue Reading →
Day 296: Bokeelia, FL Windy and warm. On our walk to the pier this morning we saw a dolphin in real shallow water swimming around. All of a sudden, it bolted towards the beach, to even shallower water. I haven’t seen anything like it. It made quite a swoosh in the water. I hope it... Continue Reading →

Day 291: Bokeelia, FL Mostly sunny and humid. Maybe I needed a project. Maybe I just got too grouchy for Tom. But the hair sticking to my sweaty, sticky face had to go. It was a team effort. Tom buzzed the back with his hair buzzers and we cut the front with household scissors. It’s... Continue Reading →
Day 290 : Bokeelia, FL Mostly sunny, hot and humid. We slept in the house last night, since Arvi is all covered up and doesn’t get very good airflow. We only saw the woodpecker once yesterday, early in the morning. Maybe he’s giving up his love affair with the rig.
