SweetPea crosses her wake in Stuart FL




Jan 7th at 3:30 we entered Sunset Bay in Stuart Fl where we started the Great American Loop.  It took us 10 months and 7 days, 5556 miles,  we traveled through 17 states, 110 locks, and brought us through Canada.
WOW what a trip!  SweetPea handled the trip better than we could of dreamed and the captain handled her beautifully.


We all toasted our completion as well as Sharon and Ken's  (Dockers Inn) who crossed their wake a couple of weeks ago.  Also joining us is Steve and Jean Purdy (Suncat) who are veteran loopers, they did the loop in 2006. We had met Jean and Steve about a year ago at River Dunes in Oriental.  

5556 total miles traveled on the loop, 7255 miles total since we left Massachusetts on
10-9-10.

This will be the resting place for SweetPea and crew for about a month or until we figure which way to go next.  Bahama's ? Keys? or both.

Congratulations on crossing your wake! We are finally about ready to leave Venice. We're heading down towards Ft Myers probably Wednesday (Feb 1). Then on to the Marathon area. What are your plans? Meet us in the Keys!! Then we can travel to the Bahamas together!!
