Back in the USA

We're back—arrived in the U.S. Friday, April 30th a little over a week ago, after an overnight passage from the Nassau, Bahamas area. We aimed for Fort Pierce originally, but the winds were too light to make it before dark, so instead, we entered at Lake Worth, the Miami Florida area.

We didn't set foot on U.S. soil for another two days, the day after we got to Fort Pierce. Fort Pierce is "old home week" where we caught up with the friends we made while we were there, boat shopping for two months.  Returning to the US meant we needed to get our phone plans set up, check in (yay! we got to do this over our mobile phone), our COVID vaccination, our produce restocked . . . and other boring but necessary stuff.
"Stay for Cinco de Mayo!" our friends at Sunnier, said. "It'll be lots of fun!" We did. It was. We even got to see our friends again at our next stop, Vero Beach, where they showed up in a pontoon boat near our anchorage.

Now we're making our way north, where we'll spend the summer. We're currently in Daytona, Florida. Our insurance requires our boat to be north of the Florida border by June 1st.

We're working on our what next; more about that soon.

Bahamas catch-up post still coming, as well as a bit of a retrospective.

  1. Welcome back! Just in time for the gasoline shortage! LOL

    1. Sorry you are having shortages. We have glass in CA.

    2. Welcome back, Dana and Wayne!

    3. Thanks Larry and Anna. Even if the Colonial Pipeline attack didn't happen, there always seems to be a spike in prices as Memorial Day approaches.

      We can always sail, well, when the winds are right. Not so much with those four-wheeler jobbies, unless they're battery-powered.

    4. Good to hear all is well !!!!
      We are spending our free time pulling weeds in the front and back yards !!!!

    5. A worthwhile cause, Phil. It's good to be out in the garden in the spring in the PNW. We need to connect on the phone and see where you can meet us on the East Coast aboard this summer.

    1. Thanks, Bertie!

      We're going to stop by SIster's Creek, near where you live, but you've already moved, right?
