I was working on one of my davits when I saw a familiar Catboat sailing out of their harbor, instinctively, an alarm went off and I immediately gathered some things together and went across the street, jumped aboard Puffin and sailed out to meet the other boat. We had a great sail, the wind was about 12 Kts. and at the end of the sail I decided to do a fly-by of my friends house. As expected, he was there with his camera in hand, this is what he caught as I sailed by.
I am fortunate to have so many sailing and fishing friends down here, it really affords me a great many opportunities to completely enjoy the Keys experience. This is what I had always hoped retirement would be and you can bet your bottom dollar that I appreciate every day that I am afforded.
