After being based here on the west coast of Florida for so long I decided to
upgrade to an official address. In that regard I rented a post
office box. Best of all I have received two items already. One was a
love note (is there romance in the air?!?) and the other a letter from
my Grand. Life is certainly very good afloat!
is my Grand, aka the Original addressing the envelope:
love the babies. I am fortunate that my eldest grand aka The Original
is an amazing young lady. She goes to a good school and enjoys
classes. This year she took up the harp. I have to admit that I

I think she's wonderful...
Plus she sends thank you notes to me. I love that.
Thank you notes are the coolest!

On the south
side of the Carrabelle River is an area cruisers can anchor for
short periods of time. Frankly though, stopping at C-Quarters Marina

porch of C-Quarters Marina overlooks the fuel dock and south bank of
the Carrabelle River. It is a great spot for relaxing in the cool
breezes, solving world problems, discussing fishing spots, and
general socialization. I enjoyed the camaraderie and made new
friends on that porch.
C-Quarters Marina has many
amenities including a fuel dock, ice for fishermen, a ship's store,
plus free wifi. The best part about the place however is the folks
who congregate there. The people at C-Quarters have perfected

personal items at the post office on a single day was wonderful.
One of my favorites as a child afloat was receiving mail. When
we would get some place, we would notify the post office and
they would forward all our mail to a new address. Getting a
month or more of mail in a single package was a Big Deal. It
still is. I confess that I am inordinately pleased to have

improving my girl aka Seaweed. Upgrading infrastructure can be
costly. Still, I am concerned that if I don't buy NOW, the prices
will become out of my reach, so...
A couple times a week I check my post office box for mail. So far
I've received a lovely note from my Grand, and Skipper's love note.

So this is
my life aboard Seaweed. Currently I have an electrical issue in the
pilothouse. That is taking up my time and thoughts. I ordered a new
