December 11, 2012    Day 214                             

Bay Point Marina, Panama City, FL
Total miles to date:  4044.3

We continue to make progress on the boat chore list. Bill has all plumbing issues resolved!  We also returned our rental car today and made a final trip to the grocery store yesterday for more provisioning. 

We had a fun dinner with Larry and Sherry (Lady KK) last night at a great Mexican restaurant.  Very good food and margaritas! So glad they found this restaurant!

We met another Looper couple today that arrived last week – Joyce and Lane on Makin Memories.  They were bringing a Christmas tree to their boat!

Today was a fairly rainy day and tomorrow’s forecast is for the same, so we are content to work inside.  Joyce is thinking about doing some Christmas baking tomorrow! 

We are still not sure when we will depart for the three day trip to Carabelle – but it will be within the next seven days!  Then we will wait for a good crossing of the Gulf to Tarpon Springs - a 170 mile trip that will take about 24 hours.

Tomorrow, December 12, marks our 7th month on the Loop!
