After more than a month of work, gatherings in Michigan and Ohio to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with family, and some wintry weather, we headed back to Bradenton, Florida to resume our Great Loop adventure!
Our daughter Erika is joining us for a week of cruising South along Florida’s West Coast. On our way to the boat we visited eight national parks. Rhonda and Erika have National Park Service passport books, and are working toward their goal of obtaining passport stamps from all national park locations. This is a meaningful way to learn more about our nation’s history and experience the beauty of creation.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s short run from Bradenton to Longboat Key Club Marina!
