    Hatteras Rules...? No.... Mario RULES!!!

    Really, really enjoyed your trip! Saw lots of familiar sights along the way. I didn't have a chance to read your editorial yet (currently getting ready for the Palm Beach Christmas Boat Parade), but will return tomorrow and live vicariously through your travels.

    Outstanding photo documentary. Nice job Mario! :)

    Found a few minutes to enjoy your journey...

    Good to see the old fashioned barter system is alive & well... trading beer for fish! :D

    Lots of landmarks resurrecting many memories along the way. As you entered Ft. Lauderdale, you took a picture of the house below. This house, which is located in Bay Colony, seemed to be under construction forever. Architecturally, it's one of the most remarkable homes I've ever seen. If you look closely, you'll see... (what I believe to be)... is an elevated heli-pad atop the mushroom-like structure in the backyard. If it wasn't before, it is now... because I've landed on that pad! ;)

    BTW... your wife is WAY cool! We should all be so lucky.

    Nice trip.
    You're a lucky guy, indeed.
    And, your kids will have memories to last their lifetimes.
