July 4th, 2008, Teri Weinstein

Teri wanted to watch the fireworks from the middle of our great Miami's Biscayne Bay.
We left the dock about 6 pm, with a pleasant overcast and gentle breeze. we sailed south for a while, then we encountered a large pod of dolphins in the middle of the bay. My guests got excited and requested that we go towards them. It was really a wonderful encounter with these great playful mamals. Every body enjoyed the live wild show. Then the wind shifted and we had to drop the sails and begin our return towards town. We had great displays of fireworks form all directions, particularly Key Biscayne, Virginia Key and Down town Miami. Then on our final leg towards Dinner Key Marina there was such a wonderful close encounter of displays from Coconut Grove. Here is what they wrote in the Ship's Log:
Captain Asaad: Thank you for providing us with a totally memorable holiday. You found all the fireworks and gave us smooth sailing. We had a wonderful time. Again Thank you
