West Coast Cruising

Recommended Posts

Docked in Venice enjoying a great G&T. 90c and just about perfect. If we had the weather we might have this sort of boating in the Uk, the place is heaving with folks using every type of boat imaginable. Off for something to eat at the Crows Nest tonight.

Heading down to Boca Grande tommorow.

Docked at Cabbage Key which is absolutely idyllic. Had lunch overlooking Charlotte sound watching the Frigate birds soaring overhead.

We had just docked when we witnessed 3 Sea Otters (mother and two cubs) climb aboard several boats looking for food. They were cute enough to be able to open a cooler box and help themselves to lunch!

Sorry to hear the bank holiday weather is not good Ian.

I would move our boat here tommorow given the chance it really is boating heaven. The Nordic Tug is behaving herself very well and has not missed a beat.

We have been enjoying the quiet tranquility of Useppa Island. It is a private Island of 100 acres, fortunately we know a man who can!

Air con is a must in this cruising area the 50 amp cable is indeed like a tree trunk.

Wildlife is simply stunning Ospreys are like Seagulls!

I will post some better quality photos when we get back.
