Birthday/going away party

It was my love's Birthday, and I thought it would be a great time to get our cruising friends and dock mates together to help celebrate Stephanie's Birthday, and a last get together before everyone starts leaving the end of this week for the Islands (that be us and several others) and other cruising grounds. 
We started out at Dockside for happy hour, apps, and Stephanie's "turd-el cake, with twenty some of our cruising friends. what fun!
After happy hour(s), we all headed down the dock, where Adrienne, a musician friend, set up on the aft deck of Bill and Patty's boat, Conched Out Too, and played for us for three hours. She is sooo good! 
Great party with good friends.
Tammy - Yes we had Fireballs!
It's always sad to leave our friends here, but most of them will be back next winter.
We will be leaving here Thursday with four other boats, and head to our staging area, where we will leave from on Saturday, and put the pointy end East, and head to the Islands "Mon".
We have enjoyed our time here in the Keys, with great friends and fun times, but it's time to start a new adventure. We will be back next winter.

September Song (good bye Keys, hello Bahamas) out

Happy Birthday to the Admiral of our ship, my best friend, partner, lover, playmate, and wife, Stephanie. I am the luckiest guy in the whole world, to have married the love of my life.

I asked the lady at Publix to add a turtle to Stephanie's cake. I said turtle, not turd-el. It looked like something Cassie and Godiva leave and we pick up with a bag. We all got a great laugh out of it, and Stephanie promptly picked it up with a napkin.
Candy, serving up pudding shots. YUUMM!

  1. Great party! So glad we could be there. Loved Adrienne and her talented nieces. Went to her website and saw a video of them performing the song they wrote exciting! Bon Voyage today! Hope you and the group have a smooth crossing and a wonderful time in the Bahamas. Will be following your blog and hope to see you in the Abacos.
