We pulled out of Ft. Pierce at 4 pm on Saturday afternoon and headed south again. I won't lie, I was a little hesitant about another night passage after our last two trying nights at sea. There was no need because Friday night was beautiful. There isn't words to describe the beauty of this world God created. Alone on the ocean without all the distractions of everyday life you can't help but be in awe of majesty of the seas and the beauty of the moon and stars. It is truly a spiritual experience.
We motor sailed all night and were around Delray Beach as the sun came up. There was a lot of boat traffic around this area. Seemed to be a great morning for fishing as I was dodging all sizes of charter boats as well as the weekend fisherman.( Those that know e know traffic is not my thing at all.) The wind was a little erratic so we continued to motor sail, really pushing it to 8.2 mph to arrive at Crandons Marina and pick up a mooring around 6 pm Sunday night. No big stories this passage. Things were a little tense when we were trying to negotiate the inlet to Crandon's but all is good. We met an incredibly nice lady that when we asked about the bus to town just took us there and even gave us the biggest avocado I have ever seen. Thank you Arnetta, you made our day! Did take the bus on Tuesday and it was a neat experience. Hope to leave for the Bahamas Thursday or Friday according to weather. The internet connection is pretty bad here but I hope to get more pictures uploaded later.
