Had a great Saturday in Apalach! The museum, the street fair, bicycled through several waterfront parks, the Veterans Memorial, the Botanical Garden Trail and did the walking tour of historical homes (also by bike)! Watched the ballgame with mostly Gator fans, but the sound of oysters being slurped all around us still brought a smile to our faces, even in the fourth quarter!! There’s always next year!
Headed out with “Our Turn” this morning thinking that we might go through Government Cut to the outside Gulf and make an all day run to Steinhatchee. They were in the lead and we got to the cut at Low Tide. We had both topped off with fuel (heavy) and the considerable wave action in the cut caused them to bump the bottom at the shallowest stretch. So we both turned back to the ICW and changed our destination to Carrabelle. The weather looks as if it is deteriorating now and we will be here watching for the next weather window for a smooth passage to Tarpon Springs (180 mile jump)
Unless, of course, we decide to go to Steinhatchee. It’s great to always have options.
A DAY IN APALACH!
