Last ocean leg

Key Biscayne Light
Weather forecast was favorable to get up at 0-dark-thirty yesterday morning and head out the Florida Channel from No Name Harbor to the Atlantic for our run up the coast, past Miami to Fort Lauderdale. Got to see Key Biscayne Lighthouse from another perspective, before I was "rockin' my soul in the bosom of Abraham" and went below for a nap. This first mate does not like 0-dark-thirty.

Captain enjoyed the ride more than the first mate too, especially since he got both sails up while motor-sailing. I prefer smaller waves than 3 footers. But it wasn't too late when we got to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, so we kept going. No cruise ships again either to raise our blood pressure!

LOTS of "eye candy" again as we passed gorgeous mega-homes in Fort Lauderdale, all of which seemed to own a mega-yacht to keep on their docks. A few even seemed to strategically place their mega-yacht to block the view of a more modest home across the waterway.

We anchored in Pompano last night in Lettuce Lake, an ananchronism if I ever heard of one. There was no lettuce and no lake either. It was simply a wide spot in the Intracoastal and pretty open to the wakes from the boats passing by--until sunset.
