And the Waves Rode Like Stallions

... was pleasant and uneventful, just the way we like our trips to be, especially after our last adventure on the ocean.

We made good time that day and arrived at Hall of Fame Marina (so named because of its proximity to the International Swimming Hall of Fame) after about five hours of cruising.
