Xmas eve

click, click, click...click, click, click. On and on at 5 AM. Wan\sn't the clock but about that loud. Was it the voltage regulator on the solar panels? Shouldn't be because the sun isn't up yet. Click click click. On a boat when you hear a strange sound, it could be anything. Got up and went outside. Click, click, click. It wasn't coming from our boat. It had woken up the roosters who all added to it and it was louder outside. CLICK, CLICK, CLICK. And then, very softly and very far away I heard "And come let us adore him. And come let us adore him." It got softer for awhile and then louder. The carollers must have gone over the hill or behind a house singing and playing their drum to celebrate Christmas Eve. A good way to start the day. Merry Christmas Eve to everyone.

West Palm to Green Turtle Cay

This is why it is called "blue water sailing" The second one is the Cape Canaveral rocket as it passed over the Bahamas. Also a hitchhiker, sunset over the banks, wild parrots and sunset in West Palm.

Jensen Beach

Now I remember why we usually go outside from Ft. Pierce either to West Palm or directly to the Bahamas.  It is to avoid places like Jensen Beach.  This is one of the homes for large sport fishermen who think they are the only ones on the ICW.  They seem to delight in Waking sailboats and do not respond to requests for a "slow pass".  We made the mistake of being there on a Sunday.  DUH!  But now we are in West Palm and had planned on going across today.  Weather looks a little too lumpy in the gulf stream so we "plan" to cross tomorrow when it lays down.
