First Leg to St. Pete: Useppa (again)

We departed FMY this morning just before 0900 on the first leg of this short trip.  It was a cool day for this part of the continent, but dry and generally pleasant.  The only reason we left that early (well, it was for us) was so I could take several job-related conference calls during some dead-head time as we plodded down the ICW at the speed of smell.

We dropped the hook at one of our favorite anchorages between Useppa & Cabbage Key islands around 13.30 local time, then spent the afternoon working on various tasks, chores and punch list items.

Tomorrow we'll head to the "outside" via Boca Grande Pass and RON at Crow's Nest Marina in Venice.  Weather for the next two days looks fairly decent.
