Pulled anchor at 08:00hrs to get to our anchorage by Star Island in Miami before the winds picked up to 20 knots as forecast. The water is shallow all the way to Miami so there can be tense moments getting here. At 10:00 hrs I dropped anchor in front of Star Island just as Todd put the engine in reverse and went to give it more power to pull back on the anchor chain and set the anchor the throttle cable disconnected and we no longer had power so we shut the engine down and Todd proceeded to fix it and I started on polishing the stainless steel stanchions, Todd finished sometime before me so he made pasta for dinner. I had a micro break and a beer and then finished up. We ate dinner that evening in the cockpit and watched the sunset and the Miami lights come to life all around. We will spend a few days anchored here to catch up on some boat stuff and rest and then we will continue heading north. See pics.
