I had to find the best "happy face" picture that I could. At last, after what seems like an eternity, we are ready to leave Ft. Lauderdale. The last posting when I wrote those words was 8 weeks ago, but we are optimistic that this time is for real.
Yesterday we bought lunch for all of the people here at Certified Diesel, a good crew who have done an outstanding job on Eos. Special thanks to Matt and his brother T.J. for all of their hard work.
In the AM we will make a short run down the New River and anchor in Lake Sylvia for the night. The weather looks good for an early departure Sunday, and if we get a good boost from the Gulf Stream and all else goes smoothly, we may skip West End and enter the Little Bahamas Bank at Indian Cay, traveling on to Mangrove Cay for the night. We can clear in a day or two later as we move east.
If we have WiFi along the way, I'll post an update. Otherwise, I'll update our travels when we get back to the mainland.
