its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

“Laughter is sunshine, it chases winter from the human face.” ― Victor Hugo

The weather finally cleared up a little this week…still not warm but at least we had some sunshine. We were able to get off the boat and enjoy the MTOA picnic at Sombrero Beach, the swap meet at the City Marine, run errands, ride our bikes and spend several evening with friends. It was definitely an improvement over the last few weeks.

Boot Key Harbor heading toward Burdine's on Wednesday.
Burdine's...still a few clouds in the sky when we left and we did get a little wet on our way home.
Local entertainment by Ty and Cory at Burdine's
Fun with new and old friends
Fried key lime pie...one of the reason we needed to get out and ride our bikes this week
Sombrero Beach on Friday was a busy place...a little cold for the water, but the sun felt wonderful.
The couples who made our picnic a reality. We had 58 people attend.
Ted and Sally were in charge of cooking up the hamburgers and hot dogs...they did a great job.

Cruiser's Net swap meet on Saturday
A farewell dinner with the crews of Amici and Exuberant. It's not really a goodbye...just a see you later. We'll see everyone again later in the year.
