Dec 27, 2011

Jim and I were up early loading the last of the supplies and getting the boat ready to head for Astor, FL.

We had to make a trip to town to check mail and last minute items then hook up and head out.

It was around 1 pm when we got to the launch ramp and another half hour loading the dingy, gas, generator, bird and dog into the boat.  Launching went without a hitch.

We called Larry and Diane when we got N of Deland and they were only a few minutes behind us pulling up to the ramp. Once the trucks and trailer were taken care of we headed N.

We’ll top off our fuel tanks at Georgetown Marina tomorrow.

It is too late to try crossing Lake George and making it to the Marina before they close … we took the scenic route…Blue Creek …..and found an anchorage.

Larry and Diane following us Blue Creek.


It’s a very narrow and twisting creek…making for a nice ride.


It was threatening rain most of the day….there were a few light showers after we got the boat in the water…but they quit almost immediately. All in all….it was a great day for launching.

I’ll sure be glad when Larry gets his blog up and running …so I can see us once in awhile.
