We stay on a mooring at the "Turtlegrass" (wwwturtlegrass.net) owned and operated by Mark & Lori. Mark is an avid HAM radio operator and we had been talking on the radio for months and looked forward to meeting him and Lori. They have a small marina (4 slips and 3 mooring balls) and operate a small restaurant, currently 2 days a week (Tues & Thurs). In addition Mark assists boaters who need to bring in parts & equipment. Items costing less then $1.000 US (including shipping costs) can be brought in duty and tax free using his service. We brought in a new OB motor and new Honda generator to replace the ones that died this year and were very happy with the results.
We arrived in time for St Patrick's day. We joined Mark & Lori at a local restaurant to celebrate.
Thanks to Lori for the picture of SV "Passat II".
