West Palm Beach, Florida.......
After a bumpy and busy night dodging cruise ships and tankers we bounced our way through the Lake Worth inlet and onto the Intra Coastal Waterway and into the USA!
We are moored in the Palm Beach city’s municipal marina at Riviera Beach and after paying our dues we paid a visit to the Customs and Border Patrol who stamped our passports and gave us leave to stay for six months;  they also issued a twelve month cruising permit for Moonstone......why the disparity we don’t know and no explanation was forthcoming.
This is world of wall to wall megayachts, we feel quite humble in little Moonstone but she raises smiles and gets compliments everywhere she goes.
