February 13, 2013  Day 278
Sunset Bay Marina
Stuart, FL
Total miles to date: 4757.4

We took advantage of the free courtesy bus the marina provides and went to Publix this morning for provisions.  The bus was filled to capacity with other boaters who were also taken to West Marine and Walmart.  Choices are good!

Bill and Joy
Looper friends on Proud Lady
After lunch we received a call from Joy and Bill (Proud Lady) that they had arrived so we met them at the dock and had them over to our boat. They are on a mooring ball for a month.  We met them again for an early dinner at Duffy’s, a busy local grill. Next stop, Hoffman’s for frozen yogurt!  Then we did some window shopping and followed the riverwalk back to the marina.  We returned to Carried Away for a very nice bottle of dessert wine that Bill and Joy brought. We had a very nice evening together!  We first met Bill and Joy at the fall rendezvous at Joe Wheeler. They were docked next to us!

Tomorrow’s plans are indefinite. We had just planned to stay in Stuart for two nights, but we are waiting to make a decision based on the weather forecast.
