12-08-09 Port St Joe Again

[Rick] We took a leisurely stroll around the docks this morning to look at the boats here. We saw several interesting ones, including this one with stained glass windows. The other interesting one is a 47 ft 2008 Grand Banks Trawler. It is beautiful. The broker says the asking price is 1.1 million, but is sure they will take $750,000. I bet they will.

We then got on the bikes and toured the town of Port St Joe. It is quaint, small, but very nice. They have all of the regular places, McDonalds, Ace hardware, Piggly Wiggly. They also have a huge sporting goods store selling fishing, hunting and any type of sporting goods stuff.

For supper, our harbor hosts arranged a Mexican night at the close-by Mexican restaurant. There were 34 of us and it was a lot of fun. It turned out to be the birthday of Ray, one of the harbor hosts. Here are Patsy and Ray, whom we met earlier at Pebble Isle marina, the one that served hot cinnamon buns every morning. Patsy and Ray have been very nice to all loopers. They let us use their car, pick people up at the airport, deliver a paper to our boat each morning, and make arrangements for any looper that asks for anything. Their boat is docked right behind ours, and they spend several hours each day at the marina doing things for loopers. It is a real blessing to have them here.

The waiter in the Mexican restaurant was very good. One waiter, 34 people and he kept the process moving. Here he is delivering some plates.

One last thing. We have been featuring the New Zealanders, and did not have a picture of Phillippa, the mother. Well, here she is, with her husband, John.
