Just passing Palm Beach. It is massive! Full of concrete high risers and tourists. Interesting.

Title: 8 Dec


Wow what a super evening. Worth the detour to see our American friends on SY Petunia, Kenny and Kris. They made g&t with a pamalmouse French liqueur very very lovely with boiled shrimps which were huge and delicious. Although heads are a bit wooly this morning. Short and sweet,
great to see them and we've made arrangements to meet in the keys, probably Marathon which is the departure place for Cuba, Varadero 93 nms away. There's no wind and it's foggy so we're taking the ICW route inside again. It's a direct route, we'd have the engine on anyway with no
wind, there are things to see and we are avoiding the most narrowest section where the Gulf Stream passes. No brainer really.

It's been rather tedious. Wind is non existent. The good news is that our wonderful American sailing friends Kris and Kenny who we met in Deltaville SY Petunia ( Kris was called that by her late mum) text us to say they were in Fort Pierce, 18nms away. As we were slogging along engine
on with no wind we thought it wise to stop over for the evening and see them, catch up on experiences and plan for future get together's. Fort Pierce is known for the SEAL's training ground and for its fishing-just off the strongest section of the gulf stream; all types of fish are available, also
manatees are in abundance here as they like the warm waters produced from the factories... We will spend the night here with our great friends then leave on good tide tomorrow morning for Fort Lauderdale. We plan on getting the parasailor out as winds are northerly and 10 knots-perfect!

Title: 6 Dec


It was lovely to catch up with our Danish friends from SY Capri. They were in the boatyard up river Wondo in Charlston. We had free berth for a few days and our friends had a car so we could victual and enjoyed a couple of restaurants for a change. We left them on Monday am and
headed to Charlston city to wait for the new alternator to arrive. Then slipped City Marina in the afternoon and headed out for Florida 400 odd nms. We need to stay out of the gulf stream which is heading right for us at 4 knots! So we are hugging the coastline as best we can to stay in
shallow water. The temperature is definitely warming, the seas are becoming clearer and we are making good progress. Unfortunately the wind is coming from the south, where we are heading, so tacking is required (slow and can be uncomfortable) Our making tack is 6.5 knots but the
other around 4.. However wind with current provides you with a flat sea and we are very comfortable. Dolphins all around and a war ship had helicopters landing and taking off on an exercise. We are starting our second night and memories of the Atlantic are coming back; the all too
familiar sounds and moving around the boat. A totally different experience from the ICW.

We will meet many of our sailor friends when we arrive in Fort Lauderdale and there is a boat light parade which we are looking forward to seeing on Sat. FL is a main sailing booking in place and we hope to buy some charts for the pacific, fit the alternator, and buy our Christmas presents
which we have decided will be a bar b que. Beats cooking down below when it is hot.

We arrived in City Marina, Charlston as we expected at 0130. We had a few problems finding a suitable spot to anchor in the dark. We are aware that there are some issues with spoiled ground. Around 0900 we went across to the marina to spend the day & night there to wait for our new
alternator to arrive. We caught up on a few jobs; varnishing the table still, sorting out the autohelm and general cleaning up. We contacted our good friend Vinnie and Carlson from SY Capri who are a few miles up Wando River. We are heading there now to spend a couple of days with
them to catch up and drink some refreshing beverages. Charlston really is a beautiful place. Great protection from bad weather. It got its name from King Charles 2nd. It's very luxurious, cosmopolitan with 6 museums, 5 nationally historic hones, 4 scenic parks, loads of churches, old
market and city hall. The Old Exchange Building and Slave Market is worth a visit to watch grass basket weavers. Very impressive work. Theaters are aplenty. The Patriot was filmed here. Fort Sumter is a water taxi ride from Patriots Point, cobble stoned streets and impressive bridges.
Dining is actually a pleasant experience some casual, French but shrimps and grits are top of the list to try. We did the tourist thing on our way north. This trip is to visit our friends and to do a few jobs before heading to Florida.

It's been a great 24 hrs. We are about 8 hours from getting into Charlston, as usual in the middle of the night. We've been in here before so confident on finding anchor spot. Leaving Beaufort at 1400 there was no wind the sea was completely flat. You could not see where the sea
stopped and the sky started very eerie. But you could see all the dolphins with every splash. The wind picked up around 0600 15-20 which was perfect! Head and main were up and we had a good sail making excellent progress. I have never heard this down below before but when I
went off stag last night whilst in the fore peak cabin I could hear clicking, woshing, squeaking sounds all around for at least a minute. I got up spoke to Phil and he said we're surrounded by loads of dolphins. It was lovely falling asleep listening to them chatting away. The wind has
dropped off so we'll engine in these last few 47 miles. I'm making sweet and sour chicken tonight. It's definitely warming up!

Great motor sail today from Belhaven to Beaufort 62nms in under 10hrs so good day in all. The homemade bread rolls, biscotti biscuits and raisin oatmeal biscuits are a real treat especially with the home made chutney (or boatmade). That's the great thing on the ICW, you can live a
reasonably normal life. Baking can help the boredom too. Adam's Creek was stunning. We saw dolphins and beautiful houses with beautifully kept lawns and private boat pontoons. How the other half live, but we can't complain; we're having a great time. The plan is to go outside and
head to Charlston to catch up with old sailing friends who came across the Atlantic the same time on the ARC+ SY Capri. Good to share the year's experiences and hear of their next plans. We will refuel and top up with water here before setting off tomorrow or early Tuesday. We have
plenty of food a the fridge freezer, again repaired, is doing brilliantly with its new keel cooler ( not cheap). And, it's so much warmer. Fleeces are off and shorts have been moved to the top shelves. What a difference 250nms can make to the temperature.

Yesterday was a good day going through bridges and locks (probably our last one before the Panama Canal). It's fun calling them to request openings hearing the different voice procedure: we were 10-4'd a couple of times. Last night we anchored south of Buck Island. although not
marked as anchorage, water was deep enough. However, this morning was a bit emotional. We had a soft bump and got a little stuck pulling off our anchorage site. All was good-a little bow thrust and reverse got us off and on our way as the sun was rising. It feels cold still but it is
definitely warming up as we head south. Alligator canal seemed a little dull coming back through. Not much to see just 20 miles of trees. YOu can see the damage the boat wakes are causing though; many trees falling into the water as the soil is washed away from their roots. We looked
for bears but no luck. Tonight we are anchored in Belhaven. A popular spot as it sits in the most sparsely populated area along the ICW. Although the sun has set we can still see the marinas and beautiful houses dotted along the edge. There's a break water that we are tucked inside and
the water is completely flat; very beautiful. We've topped up with fuel. Chilli is on the stove, calling the kids. Early night as we hope to leave early first light. Northerly wind as we head south so it would be great to pull the head sail out and motor sail tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving! We left Deltaville yesterday lunch. Felt a bit sad leaving having made some great friends. We have done a huge amount of jobs all listed in the log, but still more to do...it's a boat!
We decided to come inside onto the ICW yesterday having originally decided to go outside. There is no wind anywhere. It's pointless motoring around Hatterass when we can come inside and cover 70 miles less. Although we need to stop over at night-the bridges close at 1900. The sun
is shinning. Pepper is sounding and looking great, skipper and crew both healthy and happy. It is cold. 9 degrees onboard this morning. We anchored over in Norfolk last night opposite USS Wisconsin. We stopped over here on July 4th on the way up. No need to visit here with so much
to do. We do love it here. Full of navy ships and subs.
