Day 28 – Leaving Mobile

Hi Friends,

Just a quick note to let you know we’re almost about to cast off our lines from Turner’s Marina on Dog River near Mobile.

We’ll be sailing 24 hours a day from here to Fort Myers, FL out in the Gulf of Mexico. Because we’ll be so far off shore I don’t know what our phone and email and internet access will be.

Rex has joined us for our last leg and that means we’ll have three watches, which means more rest of all, except of course the Captain.

I’ll get posts and pics put up for Sunday through present as soon as possible.

Happy sailing!

About juliemckaycovert

I am a therapist, teacher, photographer and published author. I am a lover of life and nature. My husband, Hugh, and I live off the grid on a remote 40 acre island, Shelter Island, just off of Drummond Island in the far eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This blog is about my life, a life I thought I'd never be able to live. This blog is about dreams and ideals being manifested. It is about daily events with a backwoods twist. It is about the simple pleasures and wonders being brought forth. I invite you to be inspired and even, as some friends have, live vicariously through my words.
