|Our AIS Track (which is missing some points)|
Later that evening our friends Dan & Juli Eisenberg drove up from Englewood and joined us for a great dinner in downtown Venice. (Luna's....highly recommended for excellent Italian fare, but either split the entree 3-4 ways or enjoy plenty of leftovers....and it's cash or check only, no plastic.)
Today we departed Venice @ 0830 and headed north on the outside again to St. Petersburg; it was a very nice ride today, with only a short period of sloppy conditions at the entrance to Tampa Bay. St. Pete Municipal Marina seems to be a wonderful place, although so far all we've done is give the boat a much needed bath & put her to bed...we plan to explore the area a little more after the nasty weather passes through tonight & tomorrow.
