Cayo Costa State Park By Boat

>We came in the Boca Grande pass last night to anchor at Cayo Costa Island. It was a short day sail from Venice to Boca Grande but very windy all day. We had our first experience with dropping the jib to the deck when our roller furling got fouled and would not bring it in. I headed into the wind causing it to flap wildly. Randall, Michelle and Jake had to hand pull it in as the halyard was lowered. We were all glad when it was down without mishap. Today, we dingied to Cayo Costa. Randall and Jake have laughed at me all day because I was talking to a Park Ranger about how to get around the island which is also a state park. I commented to the Ranger that I was disoriented because we got there by boat. I forgot the detail that you can only get to Cayo Costa by boat or long distance swimming. I guess that is why she was not impressed with my by boat arrival.
