August 30

When I looked at the weather at 8 this morning it was clear till 2. That was enough for me. I couldn't handle sitting in that hotel room any longer. I quickly packed up and ordered a ride to the marina.  As I walked through the marina towards my boat I got nervous that my boat was gone. I realized I was looking at the wrong dock. It was still tied up just filled with water. It was sitting low in the water and about half full of water from yesterday's storms. I pumped it out, loaded up and was on the water by 9:30. The wind was to my back.  I felt like I was moving pretty well. When I checked the tracker it confirmed that I was. I made the 7 mile crossing rather quickly. I started thinking I would be to where I planned on camping in no time. I decided to take advantage of it. I had heard that you could camp behind an old rowing club house right before the intracoastal waterway.  With the fast pace I was making I got there earlier than expected which was nice since I had a board meeting call for the Seraph Fund.  The area I pulled up to was amazing.  Truly old Florida.  Just a really cool vibe about the little neighborhood.  People walking dogs, and kids riding their bikes down to the dock to fish.  It was a great spot to sit on the end of the dock and call into the meeting.  It’s always a good reminder about what I am doing out here when we have these calls.  It’s also a good reminder that we have a lot of work to do.
