Adventure Status Report

Hello everyone!  Greetings from cold, wet and windy northern Florida.  We are finally getting off the dock in Fernandina and heading south.  It will be such a welcome change to have warmer weather.  We have decided to move our base of operations from Tiger Point Marina in Fernandina to Indiantown Marina which is much further south.  We moved our truck down there and that is where we will return to when we come back.  It is a very rustic area on the Indian River - lots of trees and great amenities.  Again, it will be a learning experience for us as we explore this life of cruising that we have chosen.  I do have to admit though that I am really looking forward to being back in Colorado with grand babies nearby and craft room at hand.  You don't know how much you appreciate flush toilets, hot showers and a microwave until you don't have them!

We will be traveling down the coast of Florida on the ICW (Inter Coastal Waterway) for the next week or two.

Here's a look at Belmira sitting on the dock:

I hope to be able to post once a week or so, but we shall see what will be possible once we are down the line a bit.  I really appreciate all the wonderful encouragement and support that I have received from all of you!  Thanks so much.

Thanks for visiting!
