... the river, it was smooth sailing. The waters were calm and the winds disappeared and the scenery became breathtaking. We saw two bald eagles on an island. We also saw some of the most beautiful water front homes I have ever seen. Whew! There apparently is a lot of money in Naples. We arrived at the marina and got settled in without too much trauma. It was light enough that First Mate was able to explore for a while. She checked out the hotel where our daughter would be staying ...

This was Russ and my first time on a tall sailing ship and it was awesome and the sun cooperated and gave us some amazing sunset photos.
