This is just a quick post as we're prepping to head down south.  Destination: the Dry Tortugas.  We'll be doing anchorage hops all the way down before our first overnight sail all by ourselves.

In the coming weeks, we'll be finishing up some posts that we've had drafted but never finished - as well as a good long post about our experiences living aboard our boat, SV Petrichor, in Boca Ciega Bay for the last 6 months.

In the meantime, enjoy the new background photo tht BCYC member, Lloyd Mason, took of us during the recent BCYC Fun Day.  It was packed; there wasn't an empty seat to be found.  Free sailboat rides proved very popular with people queuing up until the very last minute for a nice brisk ride on club boats.

Thank you everyone for your tremendous support - without which we never would have been able to get this far.

We've been working on this project for almost 6 years and we've finally gotten to the starting line... Onward forward!
