I have to give the weather forecasters here some credit. We awoke this morning to steady rain and heavy skies. We had planned to go on a sunset dinner cruise with good friends but it looked like those plans would have to be rescheduled. The forecasters had 'promised' clearing skies by noon, but we doubted them and discussed an alternative date. Well, wouldn't you know it - right on noon hour the rain stopped, the skies lightened and by a quarter past noon, the sun was even shining !
Late this afternoon we made our way to the harbour near Sanibel Island to board our ship. It seems there were many more doubters because the ship originally had 50 places reserved, but we sailed with 10 ! That allowed plenty of time to chat with the experienced captain at the helm.
Oh, the sunset was wonderful, but you'll need to wait a few days to see it.
