January 4, 2013 Day 238
Mooring Ball, St. Petersburg Municipal Marina, St. Petersburg, FL
Total miles to date: 4378.9

One of the local boaters was kind enough to offer us a ride to Publix so we could provision the boat this morning. Then we hopped a ride on the Trolley to get back to the marina – seniors ride for $.25 – not a bad fare!  (This is their downtown Looper Trolley – an appropriate name!)

 After lunch, Joyce finished a load of laundry and then we prepared the boat to move from the dock over to a mooring ball.  This was our first experience using a mooring ball and it went well.  We will be here two nights and then return to the transient dock for a week.  Bill liked being here so he could relax and play banjo on our sundeck.

 It is has been cloudy and overcast all day but we have avoided the rain!

(We are having trouble uploading photos to the blog  - will try to get that resolved.)
