“Red Solo Cup” (click on picture to view lyrics)

First thing this morning Paula had a small tragedy – her red solo cup broke. But, first of all you must know the lyrics to the song “Red Solo Cup” to realize what kind of tragedy it was. Just click on the picture if you don’t already know the words. Well – the lyrics sure are funny when our friend Nick sings them. Curious how some strange little things make you think of someone, like an old friend singing a funny karaoke song.

What a peaceful day on the ICW today. We traveled 30-miles and could not have seen more the a dozen boats out there. Plus, something interesting happened. The marsh grass we’ve been watching for miles and miles and miles, has started giving way to some trees (refer to enclosed picture). Plus, we again had beautiful weather.

Tonight we’re back in another peaceful, very secluded anchorage. All by ourselves this time. Well, almost. We picked this spot because there was reported to be a boat ramp. The report also stated the area is “infested” with alligators. I’m not sure what they mean by “infested”. Annie and I only saw one 10-footer as we pulled the dinghy into the boat ramp. The gator slowly floated off away from us thankfully. You can just make out his head in my photo. Didn’t get his (or her) name. Hey, we got another nice sunset too. Very very quiet. Only 3-bars of Verizon 4G broadband, so we’re not that close to civilization.
