Warming up - slowly - headed to Titusville on Thursday

We all enjoyed Rudy's gift of a good port wine
We spent our last day with Lee and Joe Acosta in Tampa, Florida with weather that's finally warming up, but not much with a high only near 60! We hadn't seen Lee and Joe for two years so we had a lot of catching up to do, we've known them for 40 years from when we both had small kids in Lagrangeville. One does value long-term friendships, it's fun to have friends you can so well relate to. We shared stories over some good port wine, a gift from Rudy Colich from an earlier visit.

After 40 years, we still stay in touch - we saw that middle guy grow up from a baby to such a tall man!
We just mainly sat and talked for two days! Wednesday night we went out for dinner at a highly recommended restaurant and it lived up to its reputation, very good. We'll pick up Hoolie and head east Thursday morning to see our boat for the first time in over a month for the second half of our cruise south. This leg is really the long term leg since we'll be out for almost six months before returning the last week in May. We have lots of adventures ahead of us and we'll really looking forward to a return to warm weather after our temporary stay in northern, winter weather. A month is enough!
