April 16th – Day 1. After 8 years of dreaming, 6 months of discussing, 1 month of serious preparations, and 3 stressful weeks, we finally cast off our lines today at 4:52 on April 16, 2018. Arriving in Lake Boca at around 7:00pm. We toasted our departure with a glass of champagne along the way, anchored out in a beautiful spot with several sailboats and one power boat, enjoyed grilled salmon and called it a day. Bob did take a short cruise on the tender to assist another Good Samaritan who was bailing out an unattended sinking dinghy.
