"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

April 23 – Fort Myers, FL

Day 48 – Just another Saturday
Fort Myers Yacht Basin

Just an ordinary Saturday. Stan did a few little jobs around the boat and then went with our friend Greg to Lowe’s and Wal-Mart. It seems like we always make it to Wal-Mart on Saturday…the worse day of the week to be there! Greg had borrowed a car from family they have in town, so it was a good time to get a few things we needed too.

While Stan ran errands, I had my hair cut. The cute little shop was in a houseboat right here in the marina. Pretty cool! After lunch we went for a bike ride and did a little research on where to go from here. It’s about a three day trip to Marathon from Ft. Myers Beach. So…depending on how long we are out of the water for work this week and the weather later in the week…we could be in the Keys by the first of May.
