All Hands On Deck! April 14, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Travel & Leisure.

We’re boating around Anna Maria Island! 

Today is Island CityFest . . . a Holmes Beach Founder’s Day Celebration. 

In addition to a Classic Car show, Arts & Crafts, a Fitness Zone, six Jamming Bands rocking the stage, and FUN food, the 49-passenger Island Pearl is cruising from the Mainsail Marina . . . with us on board!

We’ll travel through Anna Maria Sound into Tampa Bay, passing the Anna Maria City Pier, while gliding through turquoise waters under sunny skies.

The Island Pearl, originally built in 1991, served as a utility boat in California and shuttled Navy personnel at Pearl Harbor.  Now equipped to navigate the environmentally sensitive Island waters, the Pearl has LED lighting, recycled cork flooring, and other state of the art equipment. 

Aah . . . that’s better!

I hope we don’t end up like Gilligan . . . on an uncharted desert isle!
