At this moment, I am blogging from the middle of the river that flows through Steinhatchee, FL. Helena and I have spent the last few days preparing the Blue Moon for its 2000 mile voyage from the West Coast
, around the Keys, and up the east coast
of the US, to New York
Actually, I was focused on preparing the Blue Moon. Helena was focused on preparing me. We both must have done a pretty good job, because I'm tucked up in my comfy bunk (with my home made foam mattress), anchor
light burning brightly from the mizzen mast
, and -- miracle of miracles -- an Apple laptop
connected to the Internet
by a cell phone
card, so I can blog all the way home.
My intention is to up anchor
around 9:30 tomorrow morning, to catch the morning tide for a ride out into the Gulf of Mexico
. But before I start talking about the Blue Moon, I'd better talk about Cabin Boy's launch...
