Sucia Island May Long Weekend

I guess we have another tradition to follow……. Sucia Island, more specifically, Fossil Bay for the May Long Weekend.

This is our second year going to Sucia for the May long weekend. It is such a great place and makes a perfect destination for the first trip of the year and makes for a good “shakedown” cruise. It can be a busy spot at times but Sucia offers good moorage, great hiking, great beaches and it’s close by (16NM) !

Roger That McMaster

This was not only our first official trip of 2013 but it was also Roger’s first cruise and he did really well!
Oh…. he did fall in off the dock (thank you Auntie Maria for saving him) but he eventually mastered the “swim step hop” after a while.

 This year we met MV Breakaway at the dock and soon after JaCarol arrived followed by Enough Time and then Jolly Mon .

So now we had a 34,  –  two 37’s  – ,  a 30 Sport  – and a 28 Royal Express……..
I think 5  Tolly’s qualifies as an official  Mini Rendezvous and an International one to boot !
Maybe next year we’ll have to expand and send out some  invitations!

Before you think  I left them out, The new (to them) SV Adagio arrived Saturday Morning on her maiden cruise and carried an extended crew. Having sold their 26 Tollycraft last fall (we loved our 26) and purchased a beautiful, fully equipped Beneteau 343 they are now “raggers” but still a part of our flotilla.
(I have special Tollycraft overlay decals on order so next year we can hide the Beneteau nameplates)

Roger and Tolly ran the trails to Shallow Bay (and even to Ewing cove) at least twice a day. Roger finally swam and played for hours on the beach.  Tolly looks after Roger almost like they were Brothers. By the end of each day they were exhausted!
