Aaaaaah Miami. The water is aqua blue. The homes magnificent. The palm
trees are everywhere. Tequesta Man eternally blows his conch horn. today
We changed our plans last evening and anchored in Santa Barbara Lake, just
north of Ft. Lauderdale. It was a quiet spot except for the small boats
returning home. Lifting anchor at 6:00am, we were through several bridges
before seeing any traffic. The Miami Boat Show is this weekend, and many
were bringing yachts in for the show.
We arrived in Mimai at 11:00am to meet a diesel fuel delivery truck. Next
we anchored behind Star Island. The police arrived shortly after that to
advise there is a seven day limit for anchoring here.
It was good to have a half day to catch up on chores and rinse the boat.
Thursday we will pick up a generator part, do all final errands, and prepare
to depart for the Bahamas on Friday.
