Port Mayaca to Stuart

We anchored near Port Mayaca. I love anchoring when we are near wildlife. The trip down the water way was boring from Port Mayaca to the last lock. That lock was a 14-foot drop, which was interesting, but going down is always less interesting… Continue Reading “Port Mayaca to Stuart”

Fort Myers to Moore Haven

We left Fort Myers from our anchorage near a power plant. There were supposed to be manatees in the area, but we did not see any. Birds were starting to fly into our area as the sun rose, but we saw few birds on… Continue Reading “Fort Myers to Moore Haven”

Krakens (Collies) Observations

By Jason Burek On the differences between dogs: whenever we let Coco out at the end of the night, she had a typical pattern. She would make her way around the yard, smelling things and checking to make sure everything was in order. Some… Continue Reading “Krakens (Collies) Observations”

Stuck, Take Two

As we started one of our earliest and easiest departures, we were feeling good about the day. It was a clear day, the sun was going to shine, and we could wear shorts from the start. The trip down the waterway was great, barely… Continue Reading “Stuck, Take Two”

We woke up before light while anchored near St. Petersburg Beach and got an early start to the day. By the time the first rays of light were on the horizon, we were lifting the anchor. As soon as it was up, Regis took… Continue Reading “St. Petersburg Beach to Sarasota”

In our last post, we said we were headed to Carrabelle. As we neared Carrabelle, many dolphins came to the boat, swam at the bow, then left. We felt like we were getting a dolphin escort into Carrabelle. The last dolphin left us off… Continue Reading “Joy. Terror. Boredom.”


Wednesday, we walked to a restaurant for dinner and got fresh seafood. Delicious. We set the alarm Thursday for before sunrise hoping to leave as soon as the first rays of light hit the horizon. Instead, we were socked in with fog. Regis was… Continue Reading “Fog”

Fix and Clean

With a day off at the marina and West Marine an Uber ride away, we spent the day fixing and cleaning. Regis fixes. I clean. We walked around in the morning trying to find the Barred Owls today with no success. We have a… Continue Reading “Fix and Clean”


We have had several interesting wildlife experiences since the last post. After publishing our last post while at anchor on the east side of Choctawhatchee Bay, the sun started to set and thousands of tree swallows showed up. I have a video below. The… Continue Reading “Wildlife”
