Here’s evidence of Parker’s boo boo toes. He thinks his booties rubbed them, then they got infected. The “Doc to Your Door” came to visit us at the dock last night, and the toes are doing much better now!
We saw the Coast Guard doing what we think were drills nearby today.
Cleating off the halyards.
Coiling the lines.
Denny stands at the bow as we leave the dock because visibility from the pilot house is limited. He has a marine VHF radio to give me directions in the pilot house.
Removing the gangplank as we prepare to depart the dock.
Diving in the anchorage off Fleming Key.
Doug gets in on the flipping action!
Heaving the staysail at the fife rail.
The Coast Guard helicopter gave us a flyby at one point today.
Looking for dolphins on the bow.
More heave ho.

The ‘jaguar shark” returns from a conditions check. The dive was scrubbed–too many jellies.
Breaking the news to the guys. They could see for themselves the jellies were think. We were just hoping that the jellies weren’t too deep, maybe closer to the bottom was more “jelly free”!
Is it going to be a belly flop?
Megan masquerades as the “jaguar shark” from the Bill Murray movie “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zssou”!
Parker with the delicate entry—-NOT!!!!
Passing up gallons of water for the drink coolers. We have a nice carbon block filter at the sink. It’s a lot of work for filling and passing, but the water tastes great!
Ryan on the twist dive!
Sand Key Lighthouse.
Catching up on his reading.
Our bathing beauties! They are always together, always having a good time!
