|Gulfport Farmer's Market|
Tuesday, April 26, 2016
We were out of milk, so we headed into town. But what did we find? Tuesday is Farmer's Market/Craft Fair day. The road was filled with various vendors selling anything from vegetables to hand-crafted earrings. We also saw a vendor selling visors for dogs. This area is unbelievably dog-friendly! After dinghying our goods back to the boat, we turned right around and went back to O'Maddy's for their cheap pizza and drinks. It was one of those magical afternoons...perfect weather, good view and awesome company.

On our way back to the boat, we noticed a Com-Pac 23 (the same model as the original Wrinkles) parked at the dock. The guy was playing his trombone in the cockpit. You don't see that every day. The adventurous and brave couple had crossed the Gulf of Mexico in their trailerable sailboat.
Good thing storms were predicted for this afternoon, otherwise we would have been on the road already and missed this gorgeous day. With so many options, it is hard to decide where to go next. After perusing charts, websites and cruising guides, we decided to head for DeSoto Point on the Manatee river tomorrow.

Even a hike to buy milk can be a lot of fun!
