The Innie-Outie Cruise began on July 2nd at the Cape Coral Yacht Basin. Boats arrived during the day and cruisers got together at 5 PM to enjoy appetizers, drinks, and shoot the breeze. Steve Roake provided frozen con- coctions for those so inclined. American Trivia showered cruisers with fabulous prizes! The following boats were in attendance:
Jean & Gary Blessing – Jazzy
Jim & Bev Slager – Salty Soul
Bill & Wendy Cook – Escapade
Steve & Theresa Roake – Lionheart
Carolyn Wilson & Dan Green – Bridget O’Toole
Tim & Deedee Cheek – Miller Time
Tami & Fred Hathaway – Sol Adventure
James & Gina Brown – Y-Knot
Lee & Colicia Reeves – Tranquility
Jim Lasorella – Four Seasons
On Sunday, an old fashioned picnic began at noon. The food was delicious, topped off with build-your-own ice cream sundaes. Cruisers hung around the tiki hut, talking and telling tales, enjoying the heat and an intermittent breeze. Clouds threatened, but mostly stayed at bay. Once it cooled off a bit, games were played and more of the fabulous prizes were awarded!
July 4th started out with a brunch at 10 AM. Again, an in- credible spread lay before the cruisers. CMCS cruisers sure know how to cook! Is there a cookbook in our future? The rest of the day was left to socialize, relax, and gener- ally enjoy the day. At 7 PM, Blessings headed out to the river to anchor and watch the fireworks. Anywhere you looked you could see fireworks displays, some profes- sional, some just from somebody’s back yard. Then the Cape Coral show began over the bridge. The view was spectacular!
Some land cruisers joined the festivities, including Rick and Linda Eggers with Nevaeh, Cindy and Dave Naumann, Debra George, Captain Seaby and Betty. If we’ve forgotten someone, please accept our apologies.
