Goodbye Committee, Including Mugsy & Mabelline

Goodbye Committee, Including Mugsy & Mabelline

The “goodbye committee,” though small, was lovely. Michael, Spiff and Gin, plus Mabeline and Mugsy, were there to help us push off.

The last cruise down the river was beautiful — a day in the low 80s with sparkling sun and light wind.

The last passage through the 11th Avenue Swing Bridge, followed by the bends in the North Fork of the New River — although it’s not for the weak in spirit, bigger boats than us have come and gone.

We cruised south toward Miami, arriving at Miami Beach Marina at 3:30 in the afternoon, only to find that their actual moorage rates were 25% higher than those advertised on the web. Can’t wait for the picture of Miami in the rear view mirror! Although the going away party at Monty’s is scheduled for this evening, we’ll write about it tomorrow!
