DRTO Bound...again.

Hi Constant Readers...

Heading back out to the Tortugas yet again.
Some volunteers bailed and I have a few days in my schedule free...

The weather has sucked the last few days... 25 to 30 knot winds,
seas 5-8 feet and higher (6-9') in Rebecca Channel.
I was supposed to go out yesterday, but the weather has been so bad they didn't head to the Island.

But today- well, they are going. Lots of warnings about high seas and wind.
It's a light day, only about 35 people going out, 6 of them are campers. Heh.
Poor bastards.

TBG, out on the water-

HA! HA HA HA!!! Thanks for the memories :) We sure don't miss days like that! Be safe and stay out of the baggers' line of fire.

No worries-
Made it out fine... Captain Rick said it wasn't as bad as he thought it would be.

Only 5 or 6 baggers. Not too bad, all in all.

I turned on a movie- watched Grandma's Boy and in no time we were there. No campers, one sailboat in the harbor. Couple shrimpers outside the east reef.... that's about it.

I forgot to give you Captain Rick's photo with his dog. Oh well, next time...
