Greetings family and friends!
Steve has finally allowed me to write on the blog!
We started our ICW passage on March 28th, leaving Galveston Bay behind.
It is a steady riverlike passage with numerous barges to pass, lowland marshes, flatlands and full cypress-lined areas. Some beautiful areas, some fairly boring, but it kept us out of the high winds and seas in the Gulf.
We anchored every night in a place off the ICW, shared our dinner meal, planned for the next part of our trip, then slept. We motored the entire way and had to manage bridge heights and locks for change in water depths, current, and shallow banks. We definitely did not think we would be in the ICW for such a long stay, but at least we are safe.
Wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures.
God bless you all and keep us in your prayers! Love and hugs from Louisiana!
