Coconut Grove, Miami, FL 25º43.532N | 80º14.193W

Familiar faces in photos at Bonnie's condo.
Miami represents for us an end and a beginning. When I envisioned our cruising life, in my mind it always started in the Bahamas. Somehow these last 67 days since we left Manteo have been setting the stage for what is to come. And now that the new reality is upon us, we realize how very much we have to do before leaving these shores! Yikes.

Chip's sister Bonnie has a condo here in South Beach, and as we headed south, we ordered a lot of gear to be delivered to the condo ahead of our arrival. Today, picked up the booty. Wandering through Bonnie's beautiful apartment, we couldn't help but feel wistful that she hadn't been here to see us sail past her window.

As an unbelievable bonus, Bonnie called to tell us she has a car here in Miami that needs to be driven. Did we want to use it while we're in town? Really?

Captain Freddie picked us up in the convertible Mini Cooper, and now we can tilt at our enormous TO DO list with ease. THANKS, BONNIE!!!!!!
