Welcome to the month of June!!!
“When it rains it pours” that seems to be the saying so far for the month of June. I was happy to get some rain and have my grass green up and the flowers bloom, but I think I have had enough now. When it rains so much that I have to pay my lawn guy to come mow an extra time, then I know there has been to much rain, and it is not over yet. Our rain chances diminish some on Saturday and then slowly return to a normal summer rain schedule of 20 – 30% chance of rain daily. We will still have winds from the southeast at 15 to 20 knots and the seas will stay at about 3 to 5 feet. Our highs will be in the upper 80′s and lows in the mid 70′s. Point me to the pool….
As The Propeller Turns:
First of all if anyone has seen my unknown fishing instructor please let him know that I need a fishing trip. I keep hearing about everyone’s fishing expeditions and how successful our charter boat captains have been. It really puts me in the mood to fish. On another note I am excited to say that we are now taking requests for reservations on an annual basis for the new floating docks that are estimated to be ready in October of 2014. Each day I come to work I see new changes in the islands. In the next two weeks or so they will be completed. Hard to believe that phase one of the restoration is finishing up. For those of you that live here at the Marina you see the changes and feel the effects of the currents and the tides that are changing due to the islands and the construction. If you haven’t looked at the pictures on the website yet, you really need to the aerial views are fantastic. www.fortpiercecitymarina.com
