|The 2013 run to Florida....done....|
First, the trip to Florida. We drove home in May using a mini-van and we drove back using our own car, a Ford Taurus we call GOLDIE. Packed into the car was everything we removed from the boat and brought home, like a 50 lb SailRite Sewing Machine, and a Zodiac Life Raft given to us by good friend and former IP owner, Greg.
|2 Bedroom Condo, Kitchen, Living Room, on the beach!|
As for accommodations, I have to hand it to Radeen. She really knows how to get the most out of our timeshare ownership. She traded time and booked not one but TWO weeks of timeshare at two different resorts. Our first week is ON THE BEACH in a two bedroom condo in Bradenton Beach. We have a full kitchen, one bath, living room, and two bedrooms. This spot is about 20 minutes from Snead Island Boatworks where we will be working on our boat. Next week, we will move to Siesta Key, where we will be near good friend Captain Blaine. From there, we will be about 30 minutes from Snead. Both of these locations will provide us a place to live while we work on rebuilding our boat. We plan to move back onboard Nov 16 and will stay berthed at Snead until early December.
