Hobe Sound, Florida, MM998.4, 27.2 degrees 80.8
Forgot to mention we went under the 1000 mile marker yesterday. really is difficult to go backwards on the charts. Moving early so we could have more time when we get to the marina only had a few bridges today and 30 miles that is an easy day. We even had some sail up, we could not keep it up for long, the wind was gusting up to 28knots and the channel was too narrow, even though there was plenty of water between us and the shore it was all shallow water. Pulled into Harbortown at 1: PM Went straight to the fuel dock (we learned our lesson in Marathon) as long as the fuel dock is open do not wait till the morning. Then to our slip, great slip, nice long finger pier to get on and off the boat (that is an important consideration) for little people with short legs like me, also had good protection from the wind man grove not far from us. We had A long walk to shore but it felt good to get off the boat and walk. We went to the pool and just floated for a while, than a shore showers and met Candy and Ben for dinner at the Harbor Cove Restaurant right at the end of our dock. They are staying in Fort Pierce for the winter, what fun we all had, good to get to know them better.
