While Anhinga rested in her slip at the Palm Beach Yacht Center and had some well-deserved engine maintenance done, we rested in Delray Beach at Renée & Irwin’s. It is always fun to be off the water for a bit, but that doesn’t stop us from keeping in touch with nature. One day we went with Renée to Green Cay Nature Center to walk the boardwalk. Such a beautiful place, so many birds, (see the heron catch a snake...), and a couple of HUGE gators. Glad we didn’t go by kayak!
Patti’s sister Karen came down from Virginia for Thanksgiving week as her daughter Lauren was in a national field hockey tournament in Wellington. Just imagine 4,000 high school girls let loose on Palm Beach County! Lauren’s team did really well; we went to a couple of the games and formed the Lauren cheering squad. John captured the action:
All good things come to an end. We provisioned till Anhinga was bursting at the seams and departed the marina. But only to go a few miles to anchor off West Palm Beach. We weren’t going anywhere yet... John was summoned for jury duty and so we wait to see if he jumps into the jury pool. (He keeps threatening to show up at the courthouse with a towel...)
