We got to say good-bye to Les, who was the Dock Master at TI for the past 38 years. He is a good man and very deserving of retirement. In the past 2 years there have been a lot of changes at TI. We were glad to see Les but will probably never go back there because of the cost increase. We can stay at Gulfport for 2 weeks for less than the 4 days we stayed at TI.
Our friends from Blue Angle are also staying here. We took a walk around the town of Gulfport on Saturday afternoon. It is a nice little town just off the GIWW.
CO's comments: We woke up this morning and found ourselves touching the bottom. Forecasted 2 foot tides are in reality 5 feet. tides. Hopefully the winds will change and stop blowing the water out of the bay.
