Well Bob’s next book won’t be out until next spring. (save the date of April 1, 2017). Bob decided he needs a book launch as an excuse to party. Silly Bob. We decided we only needed Rum….
This is more of an excursion than a cruise. On Friday, November 11, Trust Me!!! will arrive on the scene in time for happy hour. We intend to an- chor off of York/St. James City unless the wind is uncooperative. Sanibel Bight is the obvious alternative. We’ll monitor 72/16. Happy hour Friday will be on TrustMe!!! or any larger boat willing to host the tasting. Standard drill- 5P, BYOB and munchies to share. At 6P or sooner the tastings will begin. We have added a fresh bottle of last year’s winner (in the photo) to our ship’s stores. It will take on all challengers. So bring your favorite. Remember this is a serious search for a sailor’s salsipotent sipping rum. No umbrella drinks or rum punch concoctions allowed. Rums from New Jersey need not apply. Like the Olympics there will be preliminaries and quarter finals and semi’s and finals and recharges and any other reason we can think of to keep the bottles moving. In the end there should be only one bottle and no sailors standing.
Saturday morning (10ish?) we’ll explore a bit. I am open to suggestions. We can circumnavigate York. We can circumnavigate St. James City. If we are over in Sanibel Bight we can play hide and seek in the Mangroves. We can commit to a long haul and search for the fountain of youth purported to be on Chino. The goal is to justify a hearty lunch at…… Well I am open to suggestions there too. This is our chance to expand our culinary horizons beyond Woody’s. Ragged Ass? Waterfront? Or Woody’s works too. What else is there in the booming metropolis that we have missed? Is there a restaurant in the new Trump Tower? Get your thoughts and prefer- ences in, we’ll pick a winner so we can give them a heads -up that a large scruffy crew will be invading.
We will do a happy hour reprise Saturday night on a boat to be named later. Head home Sunday. This is CMCS- so come and go when you want. Hope to see you out on the water because that is kinda the point…….
Kim & Judy, s/v Trust Me!!!
