Easter Weekend in Lake Worth

An Easter bunny?
Easter on Peanut Island, FL
Today we were constantly reminded that it's Easter weekend. First we saw some cute kids on an Easter Egg Hunt in their gorgeously landscaped backyard on the ICW. Captain Pete thought he saw their Bunny Mom.

Today we even got to see "Easter weekend on Peanut Island" as we left the Palm Beach area and closed in on Peanut Island about halfway up Lake Worth. HUNDREDS of locals had poured onto its beaches, setting up tents and partying like it was Spring Break. Guess it is! Today is the day before Easter.

I felt like I was in the Easter parade, and I wasn't wearing my Easter bonnet. But it was both families frolicking in the water and young folks dancing on the boat decks. Alcohol seemed to be a factor at 5 p.m. as we proceeded north to the upper end of Lake Worth to anchor for the night.

No Privacy here!
We are now anchored safely (and quietly) in Lake Worth--again opposite Tiger's yacht, Privacy. His boat's name is again covered by canvas, as it was when we were last here in January. Looks like Tiger will need to pay a diver soon to get the barnacles off Privacy's bottom. For non-sailors, I am not making a critical comment. But barnacles and algae need to be scrubbed off a boat's bottom when it sits unused for a long time. No further explanation offered.
