Summer boating is here

What a great weekend we had on the water on Father's Day.  Between the great weather, nice running boat and smooth intra-coastal waterways; boating was optimal.  We took out one of the big deck boats from the Waves Boat Club South Sarasota location this past Sunday with some members, friends & family and heading south to Venice.  We had lunch at Marker 4 which was very good.  They have good seafood, sandwiches, sweet potato fries and reasonably priced drinks; which all makes for a great lunch destination.  Afterwards, we went to snake island for some swimming and shelling.  When we got back to the dock we just got off, handed the keys to the dock master and heading home for a nap.  A day like that on the water makes you appreciate how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place and be members of a Waves.  Waves member # 1001.
