24 March 2012 | Fort Pierce, FL
After 5 nights on the hook, we came into a nice marina near the Fort Pierce Inlet yesterday, and we plan to stay two nights. (After 6 or 7 nights out we usually need fuel, water, pumpout, and some fresh supplies.) We continue to have beautiful weather, including even wind direction, for a change. We had a nice sail up the Palm Beach area, past Fort Worth Inlet, Peanut Island, etc, and then we have had a couple of days of motor-sailing up through Jupiter and the St. Lucie Inlet area. Anchorages have been wide open, but the nights have been pretty quiet.
We have two weeks to get to Jacksonville, from where we fly to CA for a wedding. When we return, we head north for home. Yes, we will not be going to the Bahamas as a number of issues (weather, schedule, etc) have caused us to change plans.
