Venice is closest to Nokomis and a very easy inlet. We’ll be there Tuesday and Thursday.

This is is a little shakedown cruise before we take the boat to Racine, WI in April or May. Decided to run outside to Clearwater after a stop in Fort Myers and Cabbage Key. We’ll come back via the ICW to Venice and back outside again as we work our way back to Stuart. Wanted to take them to Star Fish Company for lunch. That’s why I was asking. Decided it would be better on the way back.
