Journey Take 2

Regis, rightfully, made some critical suggestions regarding my last post with a journey video. He suggested adding the places we visited and not looping the same song. In addition, I found some video from the trip in another place. Therefore, I have a new… Continue Reading “Journey Take 2”

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”
