Barnes Sound



May 9th

Ragged Keys was not the best anchorage in the world. Anchor slipped the first time I laid it, so I lost some sleep checking it periodically. More chain and backing down on it harder helped. I also downloaded an app on my phone to do the anchor watch for me. Should have figure that out earlier.

It was a good sailing day, wind behind me most of the day, weather was sunny, life is good! Luckily I found a pretty well protected anchorage to the south east of the bridge. Its a big area that provides protection from the north and east. Blowing pretty strong at the end of the day.Water was a bit cloudy and there's an aligator sanctuary just a couple of hundred yard from where I anchored. Needless to say, I didn't get my evening swim in tonight
