7 Miles To Go

KiwiBird and Seiche just passed Bottle Key and will soon be in "the ditch" (Intracoastal Waterway). They have been able to see antennae on the keys since Manatee Key, if not before that--perhaps as early as dawn. I imagine that's quite a motivator, and they may be needing one if the predicted 20+ knot winds from the north have actually materialized. At Key Largo the temperature is 58 and the wind is gusting to 21 mph out of the north. At least they'll be in the lee of some islands soon.

The big question in my mind: Is 10:00 to early for a tall, cool one?

Maybe early for a cool one, but sounds like a hot one would be the drink of choice in these cool winds!

Great job keeping us up to date! Thanks!!!

Good point, Michael. I imagine it was a chilly crossing!
