After five weeks in Miami commissioning our new boat with our broker and tackling a few other projects, we left the Miami River bound for Palmetto Florida.
We departed Sunday, March 1st. Passing through the 75-foot fixed bridges and bascule bridges on the Miami River was uneventful, and we enjoyed saying goodbye to landmarks we’ve gotten to know during our stay: Fountainhead, Mark Cuban’s megayacht; downtown Miami; the cruise ship harbor; South Beach.
After getting into the open ocean, before hitting the Gulf Stream, we turned south. Unfortunately, we had to dodge a lot of lobster or crab pots along the coast.
We passed an Air Force base near Key West before being joined by a pod of large dolphins who played in our bow.
48 hours after leaving Miami, we pulled into Regatta Pointe Marina in Palmetto, our base for the next few months of boat projects!
