February 22/28, 2016 – Banana Bay Resort and Marina – No travel

Monday – 22nd

T’was a lazy day


Manatee right next to the boat.  The next door neighbor put a running fresh water hose in the water and it came over to take a drink.  Apparently they like to drink fresh water.  

Tuesday – 23rd

Another lazy day. Watched a video for evening entertainment.

Wednesday – 24th

Same ole, same ole but add strong winds from the north rocking the boat considerably.

Thursday – 25th

We worked on income tax in the morning, went Home Depot for some GoJo to try to clean the power cord (didn’t work) and then off to the pool. There were strong winds from the north all day but the pool is somewhat protected by trees so not too bad.

In the evening the MTOA (Marine Trawlers Owners Association) had an event here at Banana Bay to which we were invited. We felt sorry for them as they held it on the point (where the AGLCA event had been held) and it was so cold and windy that it was a challenge to eat and socialize. There was live entertainment but so windy it was hard to hear. People did not hang around very long.

We retired to Sea To See and watched the DVD “Taken”.

Friday – 26th

Strong winds continued. Vicki and I had to get off the boat for awhile so we took a long walk to eat breakfast at McDonalds then copy income tax material and mail it to the tax preparer. I got a haircut and then it was off to Publix for more provisioning. That evening we had dinner with the McFall’s at the Marathon Grille and Ale House – very good.

Saturday – 27th

Another day doing boat chores and enjoying the pool while the wind continued to blow out of the north.

Sunday – 28th

The wind continued to blow but was shifting more to the NE so the wave action in the harbor was diminished. We enjoyed leisure time and then met with about 26 other loopers for a farewell dinner at the Marathon Steak and Lobster House. The gathering lasted around three hours and a good time was had by all.

Many loopers are getting ready to leave within the next week or so. We have set a date of March 7th as our goal to head east weather permitting.
