Vero Beach/West Palm Beach/Memory Rock, Bahamas
20 January 2012
Moving right along, my next destination was Hobi Sound on Jan. 6th where I anchored over night before going on to West Palm Beach. I fueled up in West Palm Beach, purchased charts, and made another expensive stop at West Marine. The north end of Lake Worth has a very nice anchorage however I didn't stay as I wanted to be near the outlet for my departure to Memory Rock in the Bahamas.
I moved over to an anchorage at Peanut Island and waited for the weather to be favorable for the crossing. The wind eased and turned to the S.E. so Jan. 10th at 1:30AM I left Florida for the Bahamas. I had an easy crossing and arrived at Mangrove Cay just as it was getting dark and anchored for the night.
