After an uneventful trip from Boca Grande we arrived at Ft Myers Yacht Basin just west of the Edison Bridge and tied up. We have been here from December 4 and will leave on Dec 17. While here we took a short trip to North Idaho for our company’s Christmas party and visited with Sharon and Paul and their kids. That trip was too short this time. Next year we will spend a two days more in Coeur d’Alene. I really enjoy visiting the company for an afternoon and hope I don’t interrupt things too much when I’m there. Also there were several people in Coeur d’Alene we wanted to see but could not this time.
We’ve been getting ready to pick up Jordan, Ethan and Aaron at Tampa airport. They will accompany us through on the Okeechobee waterway, down the Atlantic ICW and up the New River to our new temporary home at Lauderdale Marine Center. Once there we will pick up Adam at the Ft Lauderdale airport and the six of us will spend Christmas together on the boat at the Marine Center.
