Melbourne, Florida..... heading to Ft. Lauderdale.

Had a absolutely wonderful day today.....  I left Brunswick, Georgia around 6:00 a.m. and drove to Melbourne, Florida to spend the day at the beach and visiting a good friend, Barbara, whom I met on the 2008 Grand Asia Voyage.  The day was just perfect....  It was nice to catch up with Barbara since it had been a long time since we had seen each other.  Great day in the sun and a fabulous dinner on the balcony of the 9th floor overlooking the ocean... it just doesn't get any better than that!  Tomorrow I drive the final leg of my journey into Ft. Lauderdale where I will spewnd 2 nights before boarding the Maasdam.  I will be dining with my friends Mike & Janet from the 2009 Grand Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific Voyage... really looking forward to that!  Also, I will be seeing a good friend Brad Elliott on the Maasdam... good times ahead!

It is so special and thrilling
to be able to "sail" with you
and your exciting travels ! Due
to my serious mobility problems
- and the fact no friends seem
to be as interested in cruising -
for now I'll continue to enjoy
it through your eyes and outstanding photographs.

Thanks for your generosity and
the time spent with your journal
and photographs. So many of
us enjoy it.

That shot of you on the beach in Melbourne looks like a guy with "no shoes, no shirt, no problems". Have a great cruise and say hey to Brad for me.
