Denny & I took the dingy ashore at 8 a.m. with Nancy and hiked to Starbucks, West Marine, CVS & Publix and back to the boat 4 hours later. We saw a huge Manatee swimming right next to our dingy. What a thrill to see one so close. The dolphins were frolicking everywhere. We've seen several Manatees and numerous dolphins since leaving Stuart. It must be the warmer temps. We heard from Dirk & Sylvia, friends we met at North Star Sail Club back in September of 08 who have just completed a 3 year circumnavigation. They are at Dinner Key marina mooring field in Miami for a month and we hope to catch up to them in the next week or so.
