Ahoy You Northerners!!

Yiayia, Katherine, and Pat landed at Ft. Myers Airport and took Bonita Springs by storm. We rented a big pontoon boat and headed up Estero Bay from Bonita Beach to Ft. Myers. There were 10 of us on the voyage with faithful Kayla, the White Westie, protecting us. We saw dolphins, manatees and many, many birds.
Stocking up on provisions at the Parakeet Key Tavern - for that long voyage.
We're headed to our fine ship. Notice George's healing knee - a little sympathy please.
Cap'n Mike runs a tight ship! He takes her out into Estero Bay.
Cruising around Ft. Myers Bridge - dolphins were playing under the bridge.
Safety in the Sun for Yiayia - what a rakish angle to that hat!!
Marooned on a Deserted Isle?? No, just going ashore for a little Beach Fun.

Who you calling a "Birdbrain"
Kayla mutinies and tries to take over the ship!!!!!

Katherine brings us safely to dock - then it was home for all the tired sailors.
