Today we cruised from Madeira Beach to Bradenton, FL. It was a rather cool, cloudy day with minimal wind. We had a few beam waves as we crossed part of Tampa Bay, but it wasn't bad at all. Bradenton is off the ICW, up the Manatee River 4-5 miles. Once again, Young at Heart and Serenity traveled with us. We plan to stay here for a week, while they will move on sooner. We are at Twin Dolphins Marina, which has great amenities including a pool and hot tub.
It looks like there is a lot to explore here in Bradenton-- It will be good to spend some time seeing the sights and catching up on some boat chores.
This evening we hosted docktails with wonderful friends.
