March 17-April 11 Time in Ft. Lauderdale & Palm Beach


We really enjoyed our time at Las Olas Marina in Ft. Lauderdale.  It has a great location, just a block from the beach.  We entertained Patrick & Lawrence (friends from Saugatuck), Doug & Gregg (friends from Atlanta) as well as local friends, Daniel, Rob, Jordan, Stephane, Shawn, Greg & Mark.  After a few days we moved on to Palm Beach where Tally-Ho spent 5 days in the Palm Beach Boat Show. While there we spent time with an old Key West friend, Jeannie McIntosh.  We also drove over to the Wellington Show Grounds and attended the $500,000 Grand Prix as guest of friends, Roger & Jennifer Smith from Tryon & Wellington.  On May 29 Tally-Ho moved to Cable Marine on the New River in Ft. Lauderdale where she will remain until sold.  After getting us settled in Steve & Summer moved on to another chapter in their lives.  We reflect on the year that the 4 of us spent onboard.  What great times we had.  We wish them all the best with new endeavors.  We also enjoyed a week living onboard with just the 2 of us & Dugan & Dylan.  The privacy was great.  During that time we attended polo matches in Wellington, the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park, a rodeo in Ft. Lauderdale as well as dinners onboard and off with friends and on our own.  It felt kind of good to start looking after ourselves again.  While there we hired Captain Bill to look in on Tally-Ho daily and keep her ready to show to prospective buyers.  On April 11 we moved off and drove to Savannah and on to Tryon the next day.  What a year & a half we had!  One of the most memorable & enjoyable periods in our lives.  Wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
