Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound

As day 2 of raft ActionQuest begins, the lovely islands greet the crew with a rain, reminding the sleepers outside that no night is perfect. As our lovely mate Caleb says, “when it rains, it pours.” However, this did not hurt the enthusiasm to tackle yet another rotation day. As we looked left and right, we saw our companions, friends, and fellow rafters. Yet as we looked ahead, we saw great beauty in places we’ve never seen, gave other watersports a go, and watched Ashley school the whole crew in crafting a ball of twine so sophisticated it makes cats befuddled. It was this contrast of old and new that put a spin on the day, planting it as one of the best so far. Yet another surprise was the Hibiclens shower that followed. With the prospect of the BBQ, spirits are high. What the future holds is unknown, but whatever it throws at us, the crew will use their knowledge and energy to overcome any obstacle. date: Aug 4, 2017
