Far too long! Leave the house at 5am, at our boat by noon with provisions. But then it's zero time to be in our favorite (so far) cruising grounds; the Spanish, U.S. & British Virgin Islands!

Anybody got a condo around Fajardo, Puerto Rico for sale?

Cheers,
Lucky Larry

I knew I'd been on the boat too long (not really possible) when I got in my car one misty morning and reached to the dashboard to turn on the radar...

...and how hard it was to push myself to go more than 25 mph...

...and how much concentration it took to keep the car between those white lines...

...when I got to a mall parking lot and marveled at how the car just STAYED in one place all by itself without an anchor...

About four minutes by bicycle. Longer by the car because of all the one-way streets in downtown Annapolis.
