Making Progress

05 December 2018
It rained a little overnight on Monday but Tuesday morning dawned bright and sunny. We left Peck Lake before 8 a. m. with plans of going to Lake Worth. The day was all about getting the bridge timing correct so as not to have to sit 30 minutes or more waiting for an opening. 2 Outrageous led the way and he nailed the schedule perfectly. We arrived in Lake Worth by 2 p.m. in time to head off to a boat store. The anchorage was full as this is a jump off point for those who want to go to the Bahamas but, we managed to find a good spot to drop the hook for the night.

We invited 2Outrageous for dinner and Bev out did herself as she cooked a delicious prime rib roast that we had brought from home.
After a relaxing dinner, Wednesday's plan to sail offshore to Ft. Lauderdale was made and we called it a night.

We were a little concerned about the forecast when we got up this morning, there was a small craft advisory in place and the winds were up a bit. However, after checking various wind forecasts it was a go and we were on our way at 7:30. What a gorgeous day, by far our best sail of the trip, 15-25 knot breeze, broad reach with 2-3 foot seas. We arrived in Ft. Lauderdale in great time and even caught the 2 p.m. bridge opening into the city. We're anchored in a small anchorage surrounded by expensive homes. My nephew Mark is in town so we'll be meeting up him for the evening.

Our next jump will be to Key Biscayne either tomorrow or Friday where we'll hold up until a weather window opens for the Bahamas.

Today's picture is of a pair of Osprey guarding their nest.
