Kathy meets Golli

Saturday night, home in Port Charlotte, light rain, 75 degrees

We spent the day in North Fort Myers with John and Mary, the owners/sellers of the 1977 Hatteras 48LRC known as Golliwobbler. Kathy found Golli to be everything I did and more. We spent a few hours touring her and had to step aside as John' s broker, Leo, of Edwards Yacht Sales, showed the ship to a prospect from Texas. It turns out this prospect is here for his second visit. He was here two years ago as the first prospect to see her when she hit the market.

We also got to meet Mary's brother, also named John. He was visiting from Puerto Rico, where he lives aboard his sailboat. We had happy hour at the house and then went to a wonderful little Italian restaurant called L'Amore. The food was fabulous and the company was better. Something tells me we have been brought together with these folks for a reason.

There's no doubt, Golli could fit the bill for us if only we could pay the bill for her. We had another showing on the Phoenix house today, that's two in two days. We are hoping so much for a fair offer to get us launched on our SOFLO journey.

Tomorrow we will be having brunch at Burnt Store Marina.
