Tom and I arrived in sunny Stuart at 10:30 am. Since Tom is a long-time Hertz Platinum member, our rental car was brought to us right at the terminal curb. Great - less time to waste before we could be on our way to beloved Serenity. Within 15 minutes of landing, we were in our air-conditioned car (yup, we needed the A/C) under sunny, 80+ degree skies, heading to our much anticipated destination - Sunset Bay Marina!
Tom and I chatted about our upcoming week aboard as we passed the now familiar scenery. Pretty soon we were turning off the exit for Stuart and heading for the marina. We pulled into the lot, jumped out of the car, grabbed our few bags and headed for the dock. What a welcome sight this was!
By noon, we were in shorts and T-shirts and checking over every inch of our girl. Satisfied that she was pristine and shiny, we headed to the marina office where were greeted like old friends. We took care of our check-in and headed back for an afternoon of reading, relaxing and just enjoying being on our boat again.
Since we were up at 4:30 am, we headed to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner. The sun hadn't set for too long before we called it a day. We had an idyllic week waiting for us.
