|Just a Happy Guy on his boat!|
Our old friends at Bay Yacht Club in Corpus Christi had a weekend cruise planned. We quit the Club months ago since we wouldn't be in Corpus much and were cutting expenses for cruising. We figured that we would be welcome if we crashed their cruise and we actually had invites from several members so we didn't feel too much like bums.

Second Star and dropped the hook. Time for a beverage! Mark and Julie dinghied over for a chat and to invite us to the Club dinner ashore. Meanwhile, we got a call from one of the other Club Members inviting us over to the Host Boat for a swim followed by dinner ashore. We were overwhelmed with the warm welcome. While we made the right decision in leaving the Club... we still miss our friends there.
But it's such a NICE one and you can see that it works! Look at that dead crab!
We detoured to visit a couple of boats on our way back to Dos Libras. More invitations, yes, yes we're coming. We ended up being a little late because we had to thaw out our steaks and come up with a side to share at the pot luck. We packed up our potato salad and headed back to shore.
I think we were the last boat to arrive but we hadn't missed a thing.

I slept better than I have in a long time, even with the dinghy slapping behind our aft cabin. The wind never died down leaving us with that sticky melting feeling in the night that can sometimes happen in our cruising grounds. My plan to sleep "late" was foiled by a restless feline. Jetsam wanted to do her deck rounds so I got up and let her out.
