The location is arguably the Society’s most popular cruising destination. The weather was ideal. The beaches were beautiful. Plus, each night we were treated to a serenade of bagpipe and conchs. Here’s the list of those who participated in this annual pilgrimage.
Nineteen boats arrived on Friday, or sooner: 14 Tractors, Air Boss, Ambiance, Bridget O’Toole, Chase The Clouds, Double Dragon, Four Seasons, Freestyle, Island Time, Lazy Suzan, Lionheart, Miller Time, Rum Daze, Sol Adventure, Sunday Silence, Trust Me Too, Westerleigh, Wind Swept, and Windseeker.
On Saturday we had four more boats arrive: Barefeet, I Sheet You Knot, Tiki, and Wind Star.
Our three guests were: Black Pearl, Calypso, and Fancy Free. Which makes for a total of 26-boats, 50-people, and 9-dogs.
The “officially organized” events (we use those word loosely) were Friday’s Happy Hour, Saturday’s excursion down the “Tunnel of Love”, aka “Cheedix Cut”, and then Saturday’s Happy Hour. In true CMCS form, there were unofficial Happy Hours both Thursday and Sunday evenings for those who just had not had enough, or perhaps are just slow learners. No one can remember for sure.
There are good number of activities available at Pelican Bay – exploring by dinghy or kayak, walking the beaches, sitting on the beaches, hiking or bicycling the trails, fishing, visiting with old friends, making new friends, and possibly the most popular this year, going to the State Park Gift Store for ice cream.
