We pulled out of Rickenbacker Marina this morning about 8 am. As we were leaving I saw a boat coming under the bridge - "I think that is Brown Eyed Girl" - out came the binoculars but I still couldn't make it out . Next thing I know another boat is coming through and with the binoculars I could see Something Special ! Although we have seen Sid and Evelyn along the way our boats have not been able to "talk" as Sid put it since Lake Ontario.

Our original plan - yes, we still plan - was to run outside up to Dollardale, but with Craig and Sid in the bay we decided to go inside. Besides the Las Olas Marina wouldn't have room for us until later in the day and it is always nice to travel with other boats.

Little kids & little sailboats going out to the ocean, really, we saw them out there when we were having lunch.

We arrived, secured the boat, checked in and all went over to the beach for lunch. Oh, Yeah - we also put up our gold flag that lets everyone know we have completed the loop.

Now, we wait for the weather to cooperate so we can head to the Bahamas, looks like later in the week .
