    Tried to send Steve an email – couldn’t figure out the info! Loved hearing from you Jordi and looking at the photos! Hope you guys are having a pleasant sail to Cape May – it is prettier there than Atlantic City, Steve! Loved the photo of Dad, John! Cold and sunny here in Maine – Bruce ate a chicken bone this am , so have to go check on him!
    Love to all the crew of the Audax!
    PS can’t wait til you guys are on theICWand don’t have to worry about weather – paper said this FRi is the official end of hurricane season!

    Yea about your win at black jack, John – remember your gambling experience in Weston(UK)!?
    Cold here – I am glad you are further south..
    What is the problem with the bilge??? I like seeing your progress – would be great to see where you are heading – but I guess you change that as you navigate along..155miles is a long way! Dad tells me you are all very well organized and getting lots of useful info as you go along….
    Dinner sounded delicious!
    Love you guys…

    John–had lunch with your father with Bill Tansey who is lucky to be alive—looks ok 4 weeks after 9 hr operation–your Pop on way to flight to Maine–

    Great photos and updates – Dad/Rodgy and I enjoyed them with our cups of tea and “sweeties” down at the coast – it is FREEZING and windy – snow forecast for M0n the septic remains a big hole in the ground!
    So cool that you went thru /sailed by all those states – neat about the sub and destroyer – Dad calling for me to go walk dogs…
    Love you guys!

    I so look forward to your updates – like reading a chapter in a good book before bed! Photos were great – the big ships/boats? are awesome – must have felt strange passing them as opposed to other sailing craft/pleasure boats…great shot of the eagle – is that a fish going into the water on one of the other photos? also wonderful photos of the bridges – must feel very different than sailing out on the ocean – I LOVE that I can see LAND in ALL the photos!
    We have about 10″of snow- it is very pretty – maybe I won’t like it by March – but I love it now – just the right “touch” to the wreaths and candles in the windows..tres Christmasy!
    Glad Steve was able to find a safe passage back to the Audax after a “sketchy” grocery shopping experience…
    I will try to ask some people about the coffee – you should ask Phil – he probably used one of those coffee pots on his trip- it is SAD not to have a decent cup of coffee in the am!
    Love reading all your “writings”!
    Yea Audax crew!

    Greetings from one of your destination states. I am sitting here in Naples. Temp at noon today was a sunny 75 after a downright “nippy” Tuesday evening when the temp slumped to 50. Locals were unprepared for that; they were all wearing jackets and sweaters this morning. Not to worry – midday highs back to 80 by the end of the week. Anyway – something to look forward to while you wind your way down the ICW. Good luck with the rest of the journey – you remain an inspiration to us all!

    Mr S.

    John–watching as you make it south—living vicariously with you—how about another chart of ICW progress?–
