The last month has been one beautiful weekend after another. This Saturday we sailed to Navarre for a raft up with the Navarre Beach Yacht Club. Good times with good people. It was held on the pier at Juanna’s.

The evening was chilly on board, but only 66 in the boat Sunday morning. We have not officially turned on the heat yet, but I have heard it run in our stateroom twice. Saturday morning it was 61 and I thought that was a little cold and turned on the heat, just a little.

The sail back Sunday was with light winds out of the NE. Perfect considering Navarre is east of us. The mate took the boat out from the anchorage which is narrow and shallow. Then when we arrived back to the slip, she brought the boat in with some advice from me. It got tricky because the wind was not coming from the direction we had planned. To get into out slip we must turn the boat 270 degrees while missing other boats and piers. Our boat fits between our pier and the one across the canal with about 12 feet to spare. It can be fun.
