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

Feb. 6 - Moving North and Cold Fronts

Lake Worth - Anchorage

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” - Rabindranath Tagore

We stayed in Dania Beach on Friday hiding out from another front that blew in during the night. Friday was another cold wintery day in south Florida. We've seen too many of those this year...and a stronger front is coming in tonight.

Saturday started out cloudy but turned into a wonderful day, boats of all sizes were everywhere and people were on their decks enjoying the warm sun. The Miami Boat Show starts next week so we saw A LOT of large yacht being moved that way. We traveled over fifty miles today through the land of excess...mega mansions and mega yachts. The economy here seems to be doing great because in every open spot new construction is going up. Travel through the ICW in this area is slow but very entertaining.

The sun breaking through the clouds...we left early this morning so we could get out of our slip at high tide.
You can see why we needed to leave at high tide...this picture was take Friday at low tide. 
We spotted six cruise ships in port in Fort Lauderdale
Another yacht that looks like it's from the Star War movie
These are just normal looking boats in this area of Florida
Not the largest yacht we spotted today but one of the prettiest
The yacht built for Steve Jobs - Venus is 260' long making is a super yacht, but I don't think it's very pretty.
Here comes the next cold front
