Back to Florida

The Abacos were our last hurrah, with lots of great anchorages, beaches and villages to visit.
It was really hard to leave.
 It took two long days passage through the gin clear waters of the Little Bahama bank from the Abacos, and a rollicking reach across the Gulf Stream, we returned to our new home at Lighthouse Point in Florida.

It's great to be ashore again.  There was lots of mail waiting for us and lots of boat jobs to do.  Fortunately, we had time in January to get the lay of the land, so we can get settled quickly.  Linda left the apartment beautifully furnished and well set up for us.
and air conditioning!

Elegant furniture and a super comfy bed.... so happy    




With the boat moored nearby at LHPYRC, we're getting lots done and making new friends quickly.


A nice place to come home to after a hot day in the boatyard.  Thanks, Linda!


And a quiet place to prepare our tax return and compile the many documents needed to apply for a French long stay visa.
