Todd and Shonah ...

More visitors!  This time our friends Todd and Shonah stopped bye.  They've been touring the country in their Earthroamer putting on plenty of miles between Alaska, Vermont, Florida and all the parts in between.  We had several great days with them which included them feeding us a fabulous supper and drinking too much wine!  Guys, you are welcome anytime!

To follow Todd and Shonah's adventures you can visit their blog at

SIR Murphy ....

Jim, Kathy and SIR (Spoiled Incredibly Rotten) Murphy spent time in Stuart, FL with us before they pointed Charm south toward Biscayne Bay.  During that time Murphy made lots of new friends - both 2 and 4 legged. But as always, I like to think he prefers Aunt Jo best.

On the Water ...

You never know what pulls into the marina.  One day a group on jet skis pulled in for drinks at the restaurant.  But these weren't ordinary jet skis.  They were Quadskis.  A combination of an ATV and a jet ski.  Pretty cool!

The Sailor's Beer ...

We took a day trip over to Tampa and toured the Yuengling brewery.  Yuengling is home to America's oldest brewery.  That brewery is in Pottsville, PA, but we toured the much younger Tampa location.  The tour was great.  The beer even better.  Our only disappointment was when we asked when Yuengling - our favorite beer and that of a significant portion or the sailing community -  would expand distribution to the midwest.  The answer - not anytime soon.  Bummer!
