Movement to FT Myers Florida

Moored Portside Naples Florida

I've settled on sailing to FT Myers the week of April 26th, weather dependent of course, to ready Christa for trucking across out great country. Soon after or maybe immediately I will haul out at Gulf Marine Boat Yard and start stripping Christa down for trucking. Can't hardly believe the time has come. My work is down to 3 days a week and next week will be my last. I've banked some money to help with the trucking expense, which now seems to be over $10,000.00 including the hauling and re-launching. Depends on how much dithering I do while driving west. Here are some google earth graphics.

EPCOT Center, Disney and The Family

Back in Naples after a visit to Central Florida

I headed north to my parents house this week to visit the fam. My sister Tracy and niece Alexa made the trip south from Connecticut. We took the opportunity to check out some Theme Parks in nearby Orlando. First up, the EPCOT Center. It was awesome. Geared more toward education versus straight out rides and cotton candy. Of course I had the Canon G11 blazing away. A portion of the center is dedicated to different countries. So we strolled through Morocco (my particular favorite), Canada, France, Mexico, Germany and England. Maybe more. It was fun, especially with my 13 niece who, to say the least does not lack personality. Here are some pictures from the adventure.
