Teddy’s Cap

It’s a big sun down here in Florida. If you don’t believe me just come down here and walk the docks or a mall parking lot mid-day without a hat on. I concede you sun glasses but dare to try it for any length of time without a hat. So ya just gotta love a boat owner who gives his boat a personality and a hat. Otherwise, who knows what is going on here. It’s a really big tug; it’s quite some customization job. The seams of the cap are braided rod. Cute. Who ever thought a tug not in a children’s book could be called cute?

Anticipation

These pellies do think breakfast is being served. While the shrimper is cleaning and tossing collateral haul from its nets, not many of these birds will get anything. Sorta like buying a lottery ticket.
The astute observer will note that this image was taken over a week ago just as we got underway headed down south for the Bahamas only maybe a week behind schedule. Well folks it’s another week and we are like the space launch folks. Been 2 days and holding for some time – in our case holding at Lake Worth. Watermaker wouldn’t work and we can’t do the Bahamas without it. The bow thruster decided to join in by chewing up its gears (ouch $$$$ ouch). New membranes are in the watermaker. Bow thruster parts are in. Haul out is scheduled for tomorrow. Weather conditions look great for the weekend so . . .
Let’s say we are now E (for exit) minus 2 and counting. While bruised (ouch $$$$ ouch) and tired we still have our sense of anticipation. We are eager to spend some time at Warderick Wells, in Pipe Creek and, of course, photographing the Bahamas National Family Regatta late April down at Georgetown.
