Mothers day

We arrived Fernandina Beach on Mothers Day. I called my mom as soon as we made landfall.  Then on to more pressing matters, laundry! We had amassed quite a bit since Titusville. How is that possible? I don't know but it happened. We had been traveling the waterway among a few boats and knew them by boat name as Jeff likes to chat on the radio.  When we docked and we heard the name of one of the boats we had seen and were excited to chat with them as they had Oriental, NC as their home port.  Jeff hailed them as they were getting a mooring ball they said that we would see them later. Good.

Back to laundry. In the wash house I met Karen and chatted with her about which way she was headed and she too was going to Beaufort, NC and then on to Burlington, Vt. She was fun to chat with and I switched from wash to dry.  Planning on a shower next I walked back to the boat to hear, "C'est la vie? You called us earlier we are on Contigo." Oh goody we get to chat with these folks. After turning the boat around we all walked into town for ice cream. This is something Jeff and I have never done before but it was great to chat with Hunter and Julie and hear about their winter in the Bahamas. Here is a link to their travel blog - Cruising Contigo.

We headed back to the boat to dress for dinner and Jeff took me out. It was nice to be off the boat and walking around. We ended up  dining at Cafe Karibo. I had a Ceasar salad and onion rings. These might be in the top 10 best onion rings I have ever had. Jeff had a burger.  We both we quite happy and fat after our meal. Happy Mothers Day!


  1. How nice! Going out to eat for a change. Have you tried my suggestion of rotating and then cropping your phone images and then saving them? It may help your sideways photo issue.

  2. I did and thought I had made it happen for this one. I am not usually baffled by technology but for some reason...this is most difficult.
