Made it across the Gulf

Wednesday, July 3rd – Steinhatchee, FL
Completed the first leg…over to Steinhatchee. We waited around Carrabelle watching the radar on TV until about 9:30…no rain, but the sky didn’t look good. Decided to go for it! Great move…we only had a couple of showers when we first started out…then the waters calmed right down to almost smooth. It was a wonderful crossing. We turned the volume up on the Jimmy Buffett tunes and thoroughly enjoyed being back on the water. Seen a few dolphins and lots of fish jumping around. Passed one boat along the way. Got into Steinhatchee about 2:00. We took a ride up the Steinhatchee River before tying up at the Sea Hag Marina. Looks like this quaint little town is also being bombarded with developers building condos. Lots of construction going on.

Almost as soon as we got tied up, the skies opened up and the rain came down for about a half hour…typical Florida afternoon thundershowers. It’s now hot and we’re planning to jump on the bikes and find dinner…after a stop at the cute little tiki bar here at Sea Hag…

Hopefully, tomorrow we’ll move on down to Crystal River…weather permitting.
