Across the Florida Bay

The only thing we saw in the Florida Bay was crabpots.  The above picture is misleading because it was not this calm for about half of the trip.  We left this morning about 7:30 am.  We were downwind for the first 30 minutes and we had the wind on our nose and it was “rodeo” time.  Jono did quite well and I mean we had waves swashing the windows.  The winde stayed between 20 and 25 knts all morning and thru most of the afternoon.  Finally, as evening approached the wind died down.  We motor sailed in calm waters until almost 10:00pm.  We went over 75 miles which was quite a feat considering sea conditions.  The sunset was breathtaking as usual.
