For those of you who have been following the Adventures of Algonquin you will recognize this little piece of plastic. The can started it's adventure in Norfolk, Virginia around mid-May 2011. It had been abandoned on the dock and a good samaritan picked it up and placed it on our boat. When we left Norfolk we placed it back on the dock....thinking that this would be the last we saw the little watering can!
We arrived back from our wonderful New Years celebration around two this afternoon. About seven I started to unpack my overnight bag and I yelled up to Garth - OMG IT'S BACK!! There it was all tucked in to the bottom of the bag. We opened up a bottle of champagne and have been celebrating it's return all evening! I even called the Punta Gorda Herald Tribune but they hung up on me??
So, now everyone is up to date on the Little Watering cans adventure. I do not know how long we will have it with us ........
These last two weeks have just flown by and here are a few snaps of what we have been up to:
Christmas Eve we met Stan and Barbara from "Grogger" at Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda for cocktails & dinner. Stans shirt says "does this shirt make me look fat?" They were off the next day to Sanibel Island.

Santa managed to find us once again and fill our stockings with all kinds of wonderful necessities. Garth cooked a small turkey and in the afternoon we drove down to Bonita Springs Dog Beach. Zeke had a great time playing in the Gulf.
