My shift 4am

This just sucks, have had about 3 hours sleep am not happy.
But we are looking at the lights of Miami, yay we made it.

Today is my boys birthday Happy Birthday Tim, wow I can't believe my baby is twenty, how old do I feel?
I wanted to try and ring Tim and no matter how we tried nothing would work, I made them take the boat in as close as possible, and finally got to talk to him, and yeah I cried....I miss the kids so much and have been very homesick lately.
Anyway after a nice chat, and good wishes, we started our way into the channel as it is light now,
Man talk about hairy, as it quite shallow and hard to work out where to go it weaves around all over the place.
If that was not bad enough we then had to go under a remember our mast is 60ft high and the bridge is 70ft at the highest point, but we can't go under at the highest point as its too shallow.
Far out talk about stress, we made it by inches only.
it only took about 3 minutes to go under but man they were 3 very long minutes, I swear I did not breathe the whole time.

So we are now docked at the marina and all is well, there is a beautiful breeze blowing, and what do we do, we sleep we all hit that brick wall so fast, was crazy except the captain trying to be the, not really he was just busy, on the computer, but he crashed not long after we all woke up again.

We had all the plans to go shopping as Tom was going to cook dinner for us and we were going do lots of thing on shore.
Well we did none of it, we all felt like we had been hit by a truck, so we just chilled on board, we found enough ingredients for Tom to cook a chicken curry, and a few cocktails later we were all happy little campers.

Well tomorrow is another day.
