I woke Gina after she feel asleep and made her walk out on the moat where i met her and proposed...i'm glad it was here and not anywhere else that i asked her...how many people can claim that?
The boat ride back was incredible! Gina would use other words to describe it but wow...the seas were around 10'-12' the whole way back, the 2 and half hour trip became four hours! The captain had to stop the ship completely numerous times in order to avoid hitting the huge waves too fast...it was an experience. Arriving in the lee of Key West was a relief, even the crew looked white at some points.
With new knowledge about the Tortugas we knew we would return, better prepared and i would bring heavier tackle next time...and no more trips out there during the ass end of hurricane season.
