Independence Day Weekend

I am happy to report that the Constance Marie sailed as one of 12 boats in the fleet.  We sailed down the peninsula past Turkey Point and into the inter-coastal waterway over to the mouth of the Sassafras River.  From their we "iron-sailed" and arrived  around 1800.  We got a mooring near the shore and Olivia and I settled down for the fireworks display.  It's about a 12 mile journey up the Sassafras.  Past Lloyds Creek, Turner Creek on the starboard side and the plantation with all the six feet high Lotus water plants.

It was great pulling a weekender on the Constance Marie.  The coffee on the boat that next morning was even better.
