Still heading south
19 March 2015 | Ft Pierce, FL
Arrived in Ft Pierce by 5:30 p.m.. We were met my a police boat who guided us out of the channel since there was a huge dredge housed there. Luckily we do not draw much. The tide was high and rushing at 3 knots as we made a fast entrance into a great location off the inlet channel, across the ICW bridge where we purchased Charabia. After we anchored, Chris and I got things ready for dinner. We had a lovely cod and veggie dinner which we baked in the oven, using it for the first time. A wonderful meal as we ate in the cockpit overlooking a spectacular sunset and ambience. Yesterday during the day, the seas were quite calm as the winds changed direction and were very light. We had the main sail up but the motors were on. A more gentle condition for our sun showers. More jelly fish in the water and a couple of dolphin sightings. We were about 14 miles offshore as the point at Cape Canaveral sticks out a long ways. No Whales in sight. We all got a good night's sleep after being on the water for 30+ hours. Since we are getting up late today, Mark is suggesting that we go one more day south before crossing. Our weather has been hot with a cooler breeze on the water and we hope it holds until we cross. We got to skype with the O'Hallorans. Sorry that NYC is so cold, but we are guessing that Canada is cold too!! Also spoke to a couple of friends, so we got a little bit of news from back home. Jax will get some of that cold weather too. Our cell phones have service while we stay close to the US. Chris and I still enjoy playing a variety of games we brought with us. I started reading a book on my Kindle, which is a great thing to do underway. We have to say that we are all enjoying our days on Charabia!
