This big boy passed us in the Houston Ship Channel. It's no wonder there are many partially submerged containers floating around on the world's oceans.
We had a foul tide from the fairway all the way to Clear Lake. Just when you think you are almost there...
Approaching Kemah Boardwalk near the entrance to Clear Lake. It's like deja vous all over again.
Having passed the 146 Bridge the beautiful Admiral can finally relax.
At 1:30 pm we finally arrived at the marina. Marina--what a concept. Lisa's mom and dad met us at our slip, helped us tie up, and left us a large bucket of Kentucky fried chicken with all the fixings. KFC never tasted so good. It hit the spot. It was nice to see them and we are looking forward to spending time with them here in Kemah.
Lisa's Dad. They begot Lisa.
The trip from Panama City was 568 nautical miles and it took 98 hours. Since leaving Kemah in late November 2008 we logged 14,719 nautical miles (16,938 statute miles). Our Caliber 40LRC performed extremely well and took good care of us. We have been very pleased with the boat.
Alas, the time has come to let the anchor bask in the fresh air for an extended period of time. It spent plenty of time buried in the mud--it's only fair. We plan on being in Kemah indefinitely, so the fish are now safe. Like they weren't already. We have tossed around the idea of a future voyage to the Caribbean side of Central America, but nothing is set in stone. Thanks for sharing our journey with us.
