Night of Lights ...

It is the holiday season.  In St. Augustine that means it is time to light the annual Christmas tree and the city.  We joined our friends Ed and Lynn and thousands of other spectators for the festivities.  A crowd filled the park and city streets to enjoy music in the pavilion before the mayor turned on the array of lights.  What fun!

For Thanksgiving Lynn cooked up a feast.  Turkey and all the trimmings loaded the dining table.  There was so much food that 2 days after Thanksgiving the four of us got together again for a second Thanksgiving.  Thanks Lynn for two great feasts! 

All I can say is the Captain and I better get out of St. Augustine quick or we are going to be in need of new pants with a bigger waist size.

Back to the Boatyard ...

We are back again for another fun-filled season on Tropical Breeze.  In the boatyard we had all our general maintenance to complete including washing, buffing and waxing the boat.  We hate this task, but when you see your reflection in the hulls after all the tough work it is well worth it. 
We got all the work done just in time as the Nor' Easter that hit the northeast during the Thanksgiving holiday started in Florida first dropping buckets of wet weather here before continuing its trek north.  It was a wet and messy launch day with the puddles in the boatyard looking like ponds but we are launched and ready to roll.
