Swinging on the Hook Then Off to see the Blue Angles

Viridian swung slowly all night as the north wind picked up after the front passed two days ago.  Very little rain but a noticeable drop in temperature.  Viridian was anchored at the location shown below.

Location of anchorage in Pirate's Cove (Roberts Bayou)

According to a local we met yesterday, this cove was actually used by "pirates" back in the day.  The word "Perdido" is Spanish for "Lost" or "Hidden" Bay.  Whether or not pirates actually hid here we may never know for sure, but if I were looking for a good place to hide a ship, this place would be it.

That's the news and here's the views:

 Welcome to Florida!

 We had 15 knot winds directly from the North so we got an early start to beat the fetch
