After another morning sail, we finally found calm waters on the west side of the seven mile bridge. What a difference! We anchored near a teeny tiny island with just enough land to take Gidget ashore, and then took it easy for the day. Peace and quiet is what we were looking for for the next few days, and in this little spot, peace and quiet is exactly what we got. The water was so calm and glassy I almost forgot that I was on a boat. Okay, not really. But if I was to awaken suddenly from a very deep sleep, I might have to think about it for a second or two.
Riley is usually the one that has to tender Gidget back and forth to shore (let me tell you, riding back and forth in a dinghy really gets old after awhile), but the scenery looked so interesting this time, I decided to go along. It didn't disappoint.
