As most sailors know, even the best of plans are written in the sand at low tide. Meaning, everything is always subject to change. It may be weather, work, health, or any other host of reasons. But the situation is that we did set off, made pretty good progress and made it down to Venice, Florida.
Unfortunately we then got some very bad news about Janet’s dad’s health. He is in England and the situation is not looking good. Given all of this, we decided that we had to turn around and arrange for Janet to make a trip to England to help out the family. As I write this we are back in St. Joe’s Bay at Cape San Blas, waiting out some weather, but making our way back to Pensacola. Janet has a flight booked for the 19th June - so at least we have a little flexibility on our schedule to get home.
Anyway, that’s our situation as of now and of course things can change. For anyone reading this, I have a small favor to ask. Please include our Dad, Donald Clough and Janet’s family in your prayers. We have a difficult time ahead.
