Mom is making a 1083 mile visiting circuit a bunch of relatives! What fun!!
It's our turn to host her - started with a nice evening meal of She-Crab soup made with the last of my Bahamian crab claws and Mahi-Mahi/tuna on the grill.
Then today we had a leisurely breakfast and got ready to depart on a little sailing trip.....just out into the river and down to Oriental.
Arrived and anchored just outside the crowded little Oriental anchorage.
Dinghied into the dock and had a nice meal at M&M's restaurant.
Back in the dinghy for a little ride over to Pecan Grove to check out Glory Days and Island Girl (previous boats we've owned, side-by-side in the marina).
Sojourn anchored beside the bridge in Oriental. A little choppy but Mom was a trouper getting on/off the boat.
Had a fun, fast downwind sail back to the home dock - passed a few pretty fishing boats on the way.
Beautiful almost-fall day.
Settled back at the dock - relaxing evening.
