December 19, 2012    Day 222                             

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

We were ready to leave at 8:00 this morning but the starboard engine would not start. After several attempts to resolve the problem, Bob (Karma) came over to help and discovered air in the fuel line.  By now it was 9:00 and it was too late to leave and travel the 66 miles to Apalachicola.  So we stayed in port again, and Irish Attitude stayed too.

Joyce, Gay (Irish Attitude), Ivy (Karma) and Joy (Proud Lady) decided to spend a girls’ day out and went shopping! We had a fun day that was long overdue!  While we were out, Laura and Ross (The Zone) and Darrell and Lisa (Why Knot), arrived.  Several of us went to dinner to complete the day.

We will be here again tomorrow with hopes of leaving on Friday.  Stay tuned!
