its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

“Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.” ―Frank Herbert

Our 2014 cruising season has began. It was a crisp clear beautiful morning, with a thin layer of frost on the dock...just enough to make it glisten in the sunlight and be a little slippery on our way to the office for coffee. By the time we had settled our bill, filled our coffee cups and said our goodbyes the sun had melted the pretty crystals and we were left with an amazing morning. A prefect day to be back on the water. It seems a little funny to think that Osprey Marina in Myrtle Beach may be the furthest point north we get to this season. We have no definite plans this summer, except to be available to our kids and grandchildren. Staying in Florida and closer to I10 will make that a lot easier, since we plan to be in Texas part of June, July and August. That isn't the best time to be in Texas or Florida, but what can you do when that's the time of year the grand babies arrive! It's been a long time since we've been in the south during the summer...we'll have to readjust. 

By the time we arrived at the dock in McClellanville our pretty day had gotten a little windy, cloudy and considerably colder. We had decided last night that we'd take a slip instead of anchoring tonight so we could run the heater. We really didn't like the idea of waking up to cabin temperatures in the 40s in the morning. In fact it felt very nice to get plugged in this afternoon and turn on the heater. We're looking forward to the next 3-4 day with temperatures in the 70s, maybe spring is on it's way...at least in the south.
