Jupiter Daze

Yes, we have little to report other than reporting we have little to report.

Though, while walking the beach this AM with the boyz, I did snap off a nice pic with my phone. Folks were surf fishing and landing quite a few Bluefish.
I once enjoyed surf fishing. Being this close to the beach, I may have to take it up again.

The little house is coming along very slowly. Due to the holidays, all the projects we thought we'd slam dunk are on hold. We have little in the way of furniture so we're scurrying around trying to fill the empty voids, called rooms, in our new home. Luckily, it's a small house and in the meantime we've still got it's staging furniture to live on. 

We took the Albury out today. It was a pretty fall day and we enjoyed motoring around our new hometown. We eased out by the inlet only to find huge breakers blocking the cut so we eased back. 
We love fall in S. Florida. Unlike the Tennessee River, there's not many colors, mostly greens and blues, but the north breeze keeps the temps mild and the humidity low while the sun warms the face.

In other good news. As I'm writing this, we have old friends from our Pickwick sailing days who are crossing the Gulf of Mexico in their 50 Nordhavn. Clayton, like me, enjoys his gadgets; he and I have been communicating via his Iridium Go satellite hotspot as they're 70 miles offshore, plowing the lumpy waters of the Gulf. He's reporting a good night.

Crew Tivoli has just retired after many years of noble service and they've been making that long and winding run down the Tenn-Tom Waterway to the Gulf of Mexico. Now they're on their way over here to the east coast, then — who knows. Their next chapter just started.

Clayton and Deanna are composing a travel blog; it's fun keeping up with them. 
If you want to follow Tivoli's tracks —

So that's it. Someday soon we'll do something worth writing about, but till then — check out Tivoli ~ nice read.
