Kayla & Me
And, if you were wondering, that's what I did with my summer vacation!
I'm heading down to Jacksonville this afternoon to make a few small modifications to the Blue Moon (more on that, tomorrow). I'm sure she'll also need her bottom cleaned (I've had a bit of experience with that, lately.) And then I'll be heading north to finish my 2000 mile cruise.
It may still be 89 degrees in Florida, but it's already getting cool in New York. I've got a winter berth secured in Huntington Harbor -- a few steps from where the great William Atkin had his first boat shop, in fact -- and I'd like the Blue Moon to be in it before the snow flies.
But there's a long way to go. The voyage continues tomorrow. Can't wait!
