"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Dec. 28 – Palm Beach, FL

Lake Worth – Anchorage

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” —Marcel Proust

It felt amazing to be on the move today. Just as we entered the ICW from Stuart our friends on Amici were coming by from Ft. Pierce. We literally had to slow down to keep from running into them. Our timing couldn't have been better. We are both on our way to Marathon.

It was a busy day on the waterway...lots of people still enjoying the holidays. Between no wake zones, slow zones, people in kayaks and fishing, bridges and other boats our progress was pretty slow. We've been through this area many times and recognize a lot of homes and landmarks...mostly the homes, the gigantic homes. We anchored in Lake Worth the middle of the afternoon and had plenty of time to catch up with our friends Ted and Sally. We haven't seen them in person since March 2014. It’s always nice to get together with old friends.

It maybe cold in other places of the US but here in Florida everyone is out enjoying the sun and warm water
We passed a lot of beautiful yachts today, but this one is a little more unusual...the redneck yacht club
Some of the large homes in the area...these aren't even the big ones.
Just a few of the smaller boats on the water today
