We pulled away from the mooring field this morning hoping to head out Big Sarasota Pass to sail south. The wind direction for the day was already looking a little iffy for traveling south (S and SE) when we chickened out getting out of the pass and across what looked to be really shallow water - breaking waves in front of us. We turned around and headed down the the intracoastal. Other than not sailing, it is a very nice drive. Pretty houses, bridges to open for us, lots of kyakers, fishermen, and birds. Meanwhile, Kaylee is working on her knot skills.
