Christmas 2018

The Red Head crew has finally recovered from the first Christmas with the newest crew member. Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora awoke to find Santa had left three packages under the tree. Mom was sure Santa had gotten his naughty and nice lists mixed up but then noticed one of the presents was for Dylan - definitely a nice boy.

Dad tried to control the opening of the gifts - "tried" being the operative word.

The crew didn't bother to read the tags but eventually everyone ended up with a toy.

Of course, Dora wanted the toy Dee Dee had.

Dee Dee was having none of it.

 Dora persevered with little success.

Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora wish everyone a very happy holiday season. We look forward to a great 2019 and to seeing you out on the water.

Key West

 The red Head crew has been at Key West for a week now.

It was sure good to be dockside after nearly 2 weeks either at anchor or underway.

The first order of business was a visit to the dog park. The trip has now become an afternoon institution.

Even Mom and Dad are happier when Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora have spent an hour running  around the park.

Dora has a dog park boyfriend, Rigley. It was love at first sight.

Yesterday Dora even shredded her first coconut. Dylan gave a few pointers but she mainly figured it out on her own. The first of many coconuts to come.

The Red Head crew thinks they're going to like it here...

Key Biscayne

What could be harder than 3 dogs in a dinghy? 3 dogs who have been on the boat for ten straight days in a dinghy...

After ten days of moving and hanging at anchor in windy weather, Wednesday afternoon the winds settled and the crew took a dinghy ride into Key Biscayne Yacht Club. How did the motley Red Head crew make their way into a swanky yacht club? They know some people in high places (thank you, Greg!)

From there it was only a short walk to the Village of Key Biscayne Dog Park, also rather swanky.

Things really got going when Libra, a one year golden, arrived.

Oh, to be young again! Needless to say, the dinghy ride back was much calmer.

It looks like it could be another couple of days before Red Head can continue on to Key West. Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora are keeping fingers crossed that they'll take another dinghy ride.
