We all had a greatnight sleep and seemed to take the time change in stride. We had a shuttle which took us from our hotel

Several were droppedoff in town to buy supplies and Chris and I got our stuff on the boat, then had a great lunch.

    A nice looking boat. Glad Clay got to drive or is it pilot? And the men are cooking! What a marvelous idea and my idea of a vacation.
