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

“Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.” —Jean de La Fontaine

After we arrived yesterday and plugged into shore power we turned on our air conditioner, the first time since last July when we were in Plymouth. In fact we've hardly used our AC in the last two years. That's definitely going to change this summer. Anyway...where was I going with this thought…oh yeah, winter came back this morning! Now we have the heater running AGAIN.

Even though we had a cold grey windy day we didn't let it slow us down. We've been trying to figure out where and when we could catch up with our friends on Amici. It was beginning to look like we wouldn't cross paths with them this year. Then we had a great thought...we'd drive over to Maineland and see them. When you travel on a slow boat, 60 miles is a long day on the water, but in a car on a freeway, it's only an hour away. We spent the whole day visiting...catching up on each other's lives and making plans for next winter in the Keys and Abaco. It's always a good day when it's spent with friends and it’s especially nice catching up with friends we haven’t seen in awhile.
