Memory Rose at St. Pete Yacht and Sailboat Show, Dec. 2014

 Packed like sardines, the vessels were all in prime condition for showing.  Memory Rose was no exception.  Every detail was attended to and she definitely drew attention.  Most of the show was comprised of power vessels and a smaller section of new sailboats.  Memory Rose was the only example of a 'ready to go world cruiser'.  Lines were continuous to board here and all were astonished when the departed. Brokers also came in numbers to view her.

 We were the only sailboat in the Main Isle parallel to the shore.
 She looked like a marine version of a Hummer on steroids ......and sporting a luxury interior.

 She's a trophy awaiting the next winner.......

Returning home from the show, I took a leisurely route down through the Tampa Ship Channel, under the Skyway Bridge, down to my old anchoring spot at the SE corner of Egmont Key, then went out into the Gulf of Mexico and later on, back into Pass-a-Grille Channel heading for my dock.
Nice day... Lovely day.... never even noticed the cloud cover or drizzle. Any day on the water is a good day, right?
