But now we're back in the deep freeze - the low temp tonight is supposed to be -4 F, which by this winter's standards, really isn't THAT bad. Ummm.... next year this time, I expect to be staying in the Miami area at least for a couple weeks... before we sail somewhere else that is also WARM. No circumnavigation of Iceland for me! BTW - being a novice sailor at best, before buying this boat, foul weather gear for me would've included... well, I guess the kind of stuff I have to wear for at least the next few weeks around here - snow boots, gloves, a heavy winter coat.

Just got home from the Miami boat show. We got to wander around the same model boat as ours, take some measurements & photos and shop for equipment the boat. We also got to ask our broker, Brian, lots of questions. He has been extremely helpful throughout this process. We know a couple Brians and I have dubbed our broker "Fun Brian" so there is no question as to which Brian is on the phone. Anyway, below is a shot of the Miami Marina with the Harbor Bridge in the background. It was our last night, and it was around 80 F. Beautiful.
