  1. The photos are beautiful! I think you should write a children’s book “The Adventures of Stormy Petrel” I think Dawn could help 🙂
    Miss you! It is nice to see friends enjoying their retirement…this is as it should be!!
    Love, Elizabeth

  2. 2-3-12

    All great photos. Where’s the nearest Wawa?

  3. Your retirement is truly an endless vacation. We were in Amelia Island Florida, I thought the same time as your anchorage there, but it turns out it was a week later. We miss you at Cedar Creek. Island Breeze went in the water two weeks ago. It will be great to see you when you get to NJ! Happy Sails…Love, Elizabeth

  4. Wonderful pictures! Really enjoyed them
    Val B.

  5. I enjoyed looking at all your beautiful photography! Looks like you two are having a great time of you life!
