This catamaran sailing cruise made for the most wonderful afternoon with my family!
My wife and her family are from Holland and they recently flew over here to join us for our 1st wedding anniversary which we celebrated together at Wiggins Pass State Park. While they were here, our Dutch visitors asked what they could do for a fun, memorable experience that everyone could enjoy.
I suggested my favorite pastime: a cruise aboard Old Glory with me and Skipper Bud.
We met up later at Salty Sam's Marina, in Fort Myers Beach, and departed our berth around 1100, bound for Sanibel Island. Although the wind was light (as usual for our area in the afternoons), we had a wonderful sail across San Carlos Bay and the weather was absolutely glorious.
Skipper Bud brought the boat in close to the beach just to the west of the fishing pier where we were able to drop our anchor in about six feet of calm water.
We had brought a lunch of sandwiches and fried chicken, along with cold beverages, and enjoyed it up on the bow trampoline lounge area with the Sanibel Lighthouse behind us and the beach dead-ahead, making the perfect scenery for some great pictures!
This was the perfect day on the perfect boat with family and friends. I enjoyed it so much that wrote all about it!
