If you are looking for a really good meal, take the dinghy over to Coconut's. It's just around the corner beachside next to the Hall of Fame Marina. They have a good dinghy dock. Can be a little pricey.

Your photos bring back great memories of our last cruise down to the Keys - hopefully we will do it again soon as I fly out in the morning to survey and sea trial a Defever 49 RPH out east.

Keep the good photos coming - as far as a good place in Lauderdale to hold your boat for a few weeks use www.activecaptain.com and search up the river a little bit. It will save you a few bucks compared to Bahia Mar or others right on the ICW

Activecaptain is my lifeline when cruising! I've tried the Craigslist route and have a few feelers out. Hope to find something tomorrow.

I have been looking for some ideas for a Cafe on our Ocean property and I think this would be a great design. I was thinking something with a lighthouse in the center of the roof but this would be an interesting setup. Our property is at the mouth of a proposed Marina.

Had an enjoyable day on the boat today in clear, beautiful, 60-degree weather. Installed a AA battery in the new clock, filled the water tanks, filtered/polished some fuel, read National Geographic articles on Cuba and penguins, checked on the Mahalo Moi (everything looked copacetic, Ray), had Chinese takeout for lunch, and consumed a Perla-fresh-squeezed-lemon margarita. Next time on the boat will probably leave the marina/berth.

Oops, sorry about that! Found a dock to leave her at for two weeks. I have a few more pics to post tomorrow then the trips on hold for two weeks until we return and start moving again down to the keys.

Have you considered the New River Facility docks or Cooley's Landing on the New River? We have spent some time there. Close to restaurants, grocery store and bus stops. Short bus ride to WM.

Video of the following seas we had last week. Our aft handrail is about 7' off the waterline. Some were 6-7' just for fun

congrats on a great trip Daddyo. That N46 "Frog Kiss" in your pics is up for sale- she is actually hull #1 of the N46 line.

The title of this tread is Underway Today.

I had a discussion on this term this past weekend.
The difference between Underway and Making headway.

So I think the correct title of this tread should be.

Making way today. And not underway.

For those purists among you.
