The only thing happening at our local marina is red tide, and that could be here for a while too.


Well, we do have free beer and happy hour 3 times a week. I'm sure our visitors can find something to do while waiting out this storm.

I have been really bothered by all the reports of red tide in Florida. I have only seen a little of it when we were passing through the west coast on one occasion. Pretty disturbing news for Florida.

I remember that last year's red tide gave your lady breathing problems. How is she doing this year?

All is well here. We have free beer... The red ride is disturbing to me. Florida has some issues. We got a taste of it on the west coast back in 2013.

Dr.'s Lake near Green Cove Springs had an algae bloom that was toxic. One biologist stated people cause pollution. WOW! A college professor with that statement. People also cause traffic. Dredging has stopped in the canal system because of a high level of arsenic. Another problem is the high level of sodium chloride. Did not have these problems before the h :shock: urricanes.

Nice of you to ask, Helen. My Admiral returned from five weeks in Germany last month, but even though she is super sensitive to the red tide, she’s been doing OK as long as she is inside with filters and A/C running. We’re thinking that since she arrived from Germany with no sniffles, cold, or any other lung complication, she is strong enough to handle it. Still, our plan is to head out on the loop in the spring, we’ll be looking at other places to live.
