The Rest of the Story
The grounded 50 foot sailboat is still out there and doesn't look quite as majestic with the sails down and when you hear the rest of the story.
This is the second time in 48 hours that they have had to call Towboat US. They ran aground also on Saturday. Someone may need some sailing lessons or a new captain. Today at 5:00 PM they are going to try to get it off the sandbar again, and you can bet there will be a nice crowd on our deck just cheering them on.
Note to self: Walk down to the beach with your cup of coffee before you read the Miami Herald and you will be treated to a magnificent sunrise. Nature vs News, there is no competition for the best way to start a day.

This beautiful sailboat ran aground on the sand bar out front this evening. A few boats came to try to get it off, but even the tow boat couldn't budge it. We watched until dark, and now, 8:30 at night, and it's still out there all by itself with it's lights on. High tide isn't until 6:26 AM. Hope they can drift off, otherwise I may have to bring them breakfast.

What a great opportunity for everyone to meet her son, Bill. It was a perfect evening, sunset and moonrise within a matter of minutes.
Thanks, Zabelle, for a lovely time with great friends.
