Default Boating off North Captiva, Cayo Costa, FL

Earlier today, I got back to some boating. It took about 4 months to work through some issues, and I have been gone 3 of the past 6 weekends. Today was long awaited, and a really nice day of boating.

We launched the boat from the trailer, went down Charlotte Harbor, down Pine Island Sound, and out Captiva Pass to the Gulf. After some time on the beach, we went back North through Charlotte Harbor, and back to my lift on the Myakka River. The total trip was 79.1 miles.

Nice, Frank. Glad to hear things are getting sorted out. Looks like you had a great day. I'm looking forward to getting back south soon. My next trip will be mid Sept.

I knew I saw your boat before. I saw some of your other pics in the Ft. Myers section but now that I saw an actual pic of the boat I recogonize it from some time down in Fort Myers Beach. I don't remember when it was but I definitely remember it.

Glad to see you up and running again.
