Edison Festival of Light and Dockside Doings

The Edison Festival of Light was held over the weekend to commemorate Thomas Edison's birthday- Feb. 11, 1847. Edison had a winter estate here in Fort Myers and is quite the local hero. Events included a craft fair, a 5K race, fireworks, and a 2.5 hour parade, all right in front of our marina. We were invited to a potluck dinner and parade viewing on Chesapeake

The following evening we invited folks to "A" Dock for docktails. The crews of Short Vacation, Phantom of the Aqua, Seven Tenths, Gran Vida, Nearly Perfect,  Motivator, Sea Lore and Attitude Changer made a lively group.

We continue to work on boat projects during the day: updating our chart plotter software; installing an on/off switch for our AIS transceiver; having the cushions in the bridge recovered, and more. 

Another fantastic sunrise today
