The last few days Earthling has been docked in St. Petersburg, Florida. She is going to take a break for the next few weeks meanwhile I fly back to Chicago! Since I got to this marina, I've fixed things and finished projects that were left unfinished! Still need to climb up the mast and replace the wind indicator and anchor light!
First day I got here I got to meet Dave, whom helped me with the docking and invited me over to Solarice for a beer. Dave and Bonnie are cruisers and just started their adventure. Bonnie made her first sushi aboard and I was happy to join them for dinner. I will be meeting them at various locations in the future. All cruisers I meet are retired and have a steady source of funds. I am the opposite, traveling around with Zero budget! I've done that many times before but not to this level!
