"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

Mobile Bay & Pensacola

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  We are in Pensacola Fl. arrived here on Tuesday, and staying at the Marina on the Naval Base. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at my cousins home in Milton, about 45 min from Pensacola.  Compliments to the cook, the meal was fabulous.  Thanks Cindy & Jim. The pictures at the bottom are taken at Cindy & Jim's house, with their friends Bobby and Jaye, and our friends Ted & Nancy.
We came thru Mobile Bay in Alabama on Monday as planned.  The weather and water was pleasant.  So much to see along the way, a welcome change from the river banks. We saw 2 dolphins jumping next to our boat.  By the time I got the camera they were only coming to the surface, but not jumping.  They ran next to the boat for about 15 minutes, that was really cool.


The homes along the ICW are quite  a treat to look at.

The weather in Pensacola has been in the high 60's during the day, and dipping down to the 40's in the evening.  We plan on staying here for about a week, leaving on Tuesday for points further south.  (What does it take to get guys to smile?)
