On Friday night we sailed through Port Everglades, up the New River and to our slip between the Andrews Ave and 3rd Ave bridges. The trip up from the harbour entrance up the river was about 5kms - passing some spectacular homes, buildings and parks.  At each bridge you have to radio and then wait for an opening - a pretty efficient system for such a busy waterway. We are now docked at one of the city marinas, which is not really a marina, just a dock on the river wall, with a pedestal supplying water, power and TV. It is a hive of activity - we have two busy bars close by and have endless river traffic passing by. As the boats are moving slowly it is not very disruptive at all. It is amazing to be right in the "thick of things".
