Motoring the Gulf of Mexico

Just back from a 550 mile motor-motor (precious little sailing) across the Gulf of Mexico from Marathon, FL. to Venice, LA. on a friends Whitby 42.  I now know a lot more about the fuel consumption of an 80HP Ford Lehman (2GPH).  Motored up the South Pass of the Mississippi on the last few pints of fuel.

Great trip.

I never tire of dolphins.

My excuse for goofing off.......

I just walked 250 miles of the Camino de Santiago in Spain.

Now back in Miami to be greeted by this;

As we say in Gaelic "Bollocks".
