we had a very civilized sail to 3 Rooker Bar with Margaret and Ted
This has been a relaxing stretch for us - compared with this time last year when we were driven to head south as quickly as possible (50 miles a day!) because of the cold weather.
Now we are moving when we want to and enjoying the beautiful Florida weather.
We spent 5 days in the Dunedin area enjoying the company of friends Margaret and Ted who showed us the land attractions while we were able to get them on the water to visit a small sand island.
The only shortcoming for us is the lack of good anchorages in this area (although Dunedin's City Marina charged just 90c a foot for a slip) - we'll need a string of gold star days to get back on budget.
We are retired school principals (Peel, Ontario - Canada). Our fair weather home is at Sauble Beach, Ontario Canada.
In the winter we roam, trying to keep warm and looking for new adventures. This is a record of our travels.... full info

Clearwaterwe visited Clearwater Marine Aquarium, a "hospital" for injured sealife - we never tire of dolphins although we see them every day - at 3 Rooker, one played with our anchor duck - tugging on the string to pull him under the water
prosthesisthis artifical tail was specially made for a dolphin (Winter) that had become entangled in a crab trap rope and had its tail amputated
Clearwater marinawe may never get comfortable docking with poles and finger docks - we miss our cosy space at Wiarton with no tides, barnacles and rickety little docks to deal with
