Thanksgiving 2013 cruise - Day 1
We got off to a late start this morning. The weather forecast has been changing so much it has been difficult to plan when and where to go. Today and tonight is supposed to be perfect weather, then degrading to a cold and blustery day tomorrow. Looks like it is going to be very windy for the next several days. So we decided to go for it and head to Florida. We did not get underway until 8:15 am this morning, and we need to be across Mobile Bay before the front arrives sometime early tomorrow morning. So, it is going to be a long 15 hour run to our next anchorage in Ingram Bayou, just north of Orange Beach, AL.
But, we are off to a good start, with light winds and calm seas, as you can see below. This is supposed to persist well into the night, so we should be fine getting across Mobile Bay between 6:00 and 8:00 pm tonight. You can follow our progress by clicking on the Live Tracking link on the right.
