New Happenings at Green Cove Springs, FL

Wink and Wilma will be staying on John Henry (more or less) until the summer of 2008.
Our future plans include Thanksgiving on the boat with friends. Taking the boat around to Sarasota, FL for Christmas with the family. Then hopefully over to the Bahamas and a good bit of time in the keys and West Florida Coast. Keep checking in and staying in touch. Wilma is going to try harder to update on a weekly basis (TRY) anyway. Love to all......

Wink and Wilma went Shrimping in the St. John's River.

We borrowed Ken Fickett's skiff and had several great days catching shrimp.

Our first day we caught 35 lbs. Altogether we caught and kept 48 lbs of shrimp. We caught even more shrimp and gave it away. Our freezer only holds so much!

We've had boiled shimp, fried shimp, shrimp bisque, shrimp cocktail.... gosh I sound like Bubba in Bubba Gump Shrimp.

Neil and Sheila Ingram, new owners of "Silver Queen" are docked just across from "John Henry".

Today, "Silver Queen" a N37 and "John Henry" a GH47 went for a little cruise north towards Jacksonville, FL for a nice day on the water.

This photo is of "Silver Queen" with a Jacksonville backdrop.

Paul and Sue Graham, owners of GH37 "Odyssey" are here at Green Cove Springs, FL getting ready to make their annual crossing to the Bahamas. I don't have a picture of "Odyssey" at this time.

Jan Westermann and Dennis Taylor took "Mother Ocean" out and about for a test drive recently. "Mother Ocean" is a twin (not identical) to John Henry. She's a GH47, white hull with green trim.

Since this photo was taken, the deck netting has been added and the boat is almost ready to head north next week.

Here's "Carolyn Ann" a new N37 whose owners are Kathy "Punky" and Joe Pica.

Joe was in town a few weekends ago with a friend getting the sea trials accomplished for "Carolyn Ann".

Wink and Wilma were in Sarasota getting our condo ready for sale. Uncle Jesse was a big help and we really appreciated all that he did and does for us.
