Wow, blue skies greeted us this morning for the first time in 3 days. Still cold, but the sun makes a big difference in the crew's attitude.
Super fast currents down here are a challenge that we've had little experience with--other than Delaware Bay and River. So we had an ugly departure (sideways for a few seconds) out of the slip this morning as the current and wind were stronger than our diesel. Then it was all smiles as we caught the current and traveled down the ICW at 7-8 knots for much of the day.
