Home again

Ahhh... it's good to be back aboard Istaboa and amongst our friends here in Stuart.

The drive was not bad at all. Our new (used-2008) car performed very well. Bluetec diesel avg mpg was 34.8. Not bad for a luxury car. We Americans need to hop on the diesel bandwagon, these German diesels are far ahead of hybrids and fast too.

The John Grisham audio book was excellent; The confession. We're not finished yet, we almost kept driving, but we have another 2 hours left. Great story.

Oh!... the highpoint of the trip was finding a little butcher shop in Albany, Georgia (pronounced Awlbeany) named Carroll's Sausage and meats. Truly wonderful sausage. Must order more. All their meat looked very good.

Gonna get the Albury out tomorrow while the weather is so nice. We have some of our old Compass Cay friends coming by in their new boat and they are staying here at Sunset Bay for New Year's Eve.
Should be fun.

Soooo  good to be back. Hope we can stay (or leave and head to the islands) for a while.
