The last of the snow birds are trickling down past mile marker "0" on the ICW these days. Warmer than usual with clear skies, it must be a wonderful time to sail south for Florida, the Bahamas or wherever.
From the bridge this afternoon I could see there are a couple of boats anchored for the evening in Craford Bay. I wonder if they will stay moored to celebrate the holiday. Maybe I will sail by them in the morning and wish them a Happy Thanksgiving. For a variety of reasons - travel, distance and work - Thanksgiving for us will be Saturday afternoon. In the meantime the sailing forecast can only be described as perfect for this time of year - mid-60s, clear skies and 8 to 10 mph of wind.
For those who have a better schedule than I, Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the day. And I'll raise a toast to you on Saturday.
