Sailing Down The Intracoastal Waterway
Melanie and I spent three days this week with our friends, Roger and Jan Dean aboard their sailboat, Grace Upon Grace. Roger and Jan are sailing from Hilton Head, SC to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We met them at St. Augustine and went as far as Daytona Beach onboard their boat.
They live in Atlanta and have been good friends for years. They and we have traveled with a group to the British Virgin Islands for a number of years, where we sail from island to island on two or three boats. We always spend a week there and I usually speak to the groups about sailing as a metaphor for the grace walk. I have outlined a book on this subject and plan to write it at some point. Because of our ministry trip to Norway next month, Melanie and I won't be able to make the trip with them to the BVI this year.
The pictures in the slideshow above are a few I took as we traveled along the Intracoastal Waterway between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. The three days passed quickly.
