Mothers Day Boat Cruise to Jupiter 2019
May 12, 2019 – Jupiter FL
Today we had a lovely group onboard the Honu to celebrate Mothers Day. Nancy and Steve brought Steve’s Mother Martha to enjoy a day on the water.
When we met the group, we found out that nobody had any boating knowledge and were all looking forward to a new experience. Steve and Nancy were ready to get onboard, but Martha was a little intimidated since she had a fear of the water.
Once onboard in air conditioned comfort, we went over all of the safety instructions and were ready to head out.
Once off the dock with everyone on the flybridge, Martha had a death grip on the rail; which by the end of the trip was a non-factor 😉
With storms building South of the area, we checked the weather and decided to wait 15 minutes to let them pass in front of us. While it was a bit windy at first we finally had clear sailing all the way to Jupiter Lighthouse.
Everyone enjoyed the trip and seeing all of the homes along the route; including, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, Burt Reynolds, Alan Olivia Newton John and Perry Como’s former homesite.
The trip home was uneventful with friendly banter and Captain and crew sharing as much knowledge as we could to the group since they only moved to the area 8 months ago.
As we approached the dock another storm was brewing so we quickly said our goodbyes so they could get in their car ahead of the rain…and just in the nick of time!
All in all it was a fun afternoon with some very fine people. We were fortunate to have zero rain dampen Martha’s special Mother’s Day Cruise.
Captain Dave and Denise look forward to hosting Steve and Nancy again sometime and definitely hope to see them around town.
