08 Mar Susan,Christine, Elaine, and Young Grasshopper
The day before the March full moon, Christine, Susan, Elaine, and Young Grasshopper left the dock in search of shells, a sunset, great food and a moonrise. We all got more than we were looking for. The trip started by traveling to one of my favorites places to eat by the water. The delicious and beautiful Tarpon Lodge. After lunch we toured the 50 acre archaeological site at the Randell Research Center. The vistas from these large shell mounds are stunning. Then we boated over to secret spot #…The entry into this spot was delayed due to other boats in area. Finally, we arrived on a beautiful stretch of beach and the weather was perfect. Time quickly flew by, it was time to move on and get the anchor set to watch the sun fall into the Gulf. The ride was windy and Captain Brian got very wet. The sunset and moonrise were toasted with champagne. We were the only boat out on the water. (Probably due to the high winds:) The moon was beautiful and the sunset and conversation were equally as satisfying. We pulled anchor under an almost full moon and travelled back to the dock. The trip back was memorable and very wet. I dumped over a cup of water out of my boot. Christine and crew are always laid back and enjoy whatever the day unfolds.
