Boca Ciega Yacht Club Gulfport Fl Open House

If you are in the area and have a mind to stop by this Saturday, April 28, 2012 1-4 pm Gulfport time, our sailing club is having an open house with free sailboat rides around Boca Ciega Bay.

Somehow I must have gotton King Neptune really upset with us as I and my wife were charmed into coordinating 15 sailboats ranging in size from 22 to 45 feet to give about 300 people sailboat rides that afternoon - based on last years stats - Should be interesting.

Anyway its a lot of fun with vendors and hot dogs and soda and lots and lots of really good door prizes.

Boca Ciega Yacht Club  is located on the south side of Gulfport Marina along the channel - do not come by boat.

And as an added bonus you get to see HideAways brand new trailer tire -- such a deal!

Dancing with an Egret

You've seen the majestic Snowy Egret standing motionless in the shallows stalking lunch.  If you wait long enough you many find one that likes to dance. This time on Sailing Hideaway. 




So life wasn't the party you exprcted it to be - but as long as you're here you might as well dance

Be sure to search for Sailing HideAway on Zazzle.com.
