The bars on the swim platform are called staples. I ordered them several weeks before we got to Stuart where they were made. If you remember, I had an accident in the Islands and broke three ribs getting out of the tender and on to the swim platform in rough weather. Not any more! I guess September Song is now "handicap accessible".
While in Stuart, Stephanie's brother, Eric, and his life partner of 29 years, Rob, came for a visit for three days. She hasn't seen them for twenty some years, and I had never met them. They lived in Alaska, and moved to Florida this past year. What a weather shock! What a great couple of guys!
