TARDIS anchored in North Lake Worth for a total of five nights. We made several trips on 'Space Patrol' to shore to shop, eat and take long walks.
Here is the dinghy landing. It's next to the bridge to the island and State Park. Rumor has it that it's risky to leave your dinghy there due to theft.
We felt none of that and met the nicest man fishing from the bridge. Reminds Charlie of the fisherman he met at the Eagle Creek Ramp and Rick's docks. They love to tell you about their newest baits and what they catch.
One time Eileen just stayed with 'Space Patrol' while Charlie ran an errand. Always interesting and talkative people at the dinghy landings.
We are lucky on our walks and ducked into a fantastic little place to eat seafood that was inexpensive and fun one afternoon in Juniper Beach.
We also made water a couple times. The 2nd time was because Charlie flushed the membranes a little too well and went through 25g of fresh water in the process. Learning curve. Here's the Honda and water test equipment.
We moved two hours and 8nm down the ICW to the land of BIG boats, houses and crowded anchorages on December 12th.
We anchored in a small area between two bridges at West Palm Beach.
Looking North is the Flagler Memorial Bridge. This is the bridge we came through already
Looking South is the Royal Park Bridge. Mar-a-Lago is after this bridge. Hopefully there will not be a boat traffic stoppage for security when we move further south.
Anchoring sometimes can be difficult. It took us several tries this time. On the third try we stayed anchored. The first two times were not acceptable to our neighboring boats. In a kind way, they let you know! It's about safety and much better to anchor properly than to move in a hurry in the middle of the night.
TARDIS is the boat in the middle. This anchorage is well known for its' current. The current is so strong here the boat will face into the current even if the wind is blowing 20k from the stern. Makes for interesting swings and breeze in the cabin at times. The tide changes about every six hours, all day and night.
It's a beautiful area with lots of things to do (eat n drink!) ashore. Space Patrol is our car.
There's live entertainment every night in the park. Tonight's show is Motown. Whether we go to shore or not we will hear it!
We find time to read and time to just sit and be reflective.
We also find time for the 'Little' things that make life on the boat so interesting.
Soon to be toppings for enchiladas
We also find small things to make life easier by producing less trash. From this

Life is good on the TARDIS while we wait on a weather window to the Bahamas!
