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

April 30 – Marco Island, FL

Day 55 – Moving South
Marco IslandAnchorage

We finally left Ft. Myers Beach this morning. The wind was still up a little but we stayed as close to shore as we could and the ride was not too bad. We saw a manatee as we entered the bay at Marco Island and lot of dolphins playing as we anchored. It looks like a nice area and we took the dinghy down to do a little exploring, but we didn’t go far. There were too many clouds on the horizon and we knew a storm was suppose to be coming, so we went back to the boat and got ready. What a storm…high winds, thunder and lots of rain. Not a lot of fun, but the anchors held and the storm passed.

We were going to cook on the grill, but it was a little windy and the skies were still threatening, so we had to cook inside. We had a beautiful sunset and the temperature has dropped, so the rest of the night should be comfortable.

Marco Island...can you see the two dolphins?
