CT to FL Day 33
Fort Myers, FL to Punta Gorda, Fl
We departed from Fort Myers this morning at 0800 on the last leg of our 2014 trip south. This is both a sad day and a happy day. Sad that this ends our cruising till spring of 2015 and happy that we are back to our winter home.
Being a Saturday there were tons of boats on the water going in all directions. Radio was very busy as well. We were lucky in that we had a favorable current with us most of the day and it shortened our typical 8 plus to 7.5 hours arriving at 1530 with an awesome welcoming party on the dock to meet us as we docked. Very nice to see all of our winter dock mates and I'm sure there are a few new ones we will meet.
We are docked in Fishermen's Village Marina slip B-13till sometime in April 2015 at N26°55.740', W082°03.824'
. We traveled today for 7.5 hours covering 53.6 nautical miles averaging 7.1 knots.
