Home, Port Charlotte; 73 degrees at wake up
Marine forecast calls for a slight chance of light morning showers, 2' seas on the Gulf with a light chop on the coastal bays, high of 86.
We have planned a local cruise for Sunday. We will set out about 9AM, crossing SW across Charlotte Harbor toward the island of Cayo Costa. We will cruise the isles of Patricio, Useppa, Cabbage Key, Middle Key and Bird Key for sightseeing.
We will then head back into Charlotte Harbor to Burnt Store Marina, just so we know the way when friends come visit and we take them to the fabulous Sunday brunch. After a break, will start toward Punta Gorda and Fishermen's Village for dolphin watching.
The final leg of our first cruise will take us north across the harbor, where we will cruise the marked channel in front of the Port Charlotte canal system, looking at the waterfront homes, past the Charlotte Beach complex, back into Alligator Bay then home with an e.t.a. of 5 PM.
