Death by Bridges & Making Our Way Home

As all good things must come to an end, so must our shakedown cruise.

It was hard to tear ourselves away from one of our new favorite spots on the east side of Peanut Island, but we knew there was still a lot of boat work to be completed before hurricane season finishes, and it would be fastest and easiest to do back at Indiantown Marina.

Heading north on the ICW we were met with three timed bridges which kept us on our toes, trying to time our arrival perfectly, although usually arriving 10 minutes early. Fighting a two knot current that was trying to push us into the bridges, it made for some hectic moments, but we survived.

Pulling out the headsail past Jupiter, we had a nice sail up the coast for as long as the wind would allow it.

Cheers from our shakedown!

Testing Our Sea Breathe Hookah and Snorkeling Peanut Island

Continuing our stay next to Peanut Island in the Palm Beach area, we decide to spend as much time as we can in the water.

Having received a snorkeling hookah from one of our viewers, we’ve finally found a place to test it out as Matt goes in the water to clean away ‘the Inidiantown funk’ as he calls it. Bringing ourselves closer to shore, we also snorkel the island with it’s formation of rocks set up to bring in sea life. Not much coral to view, but we did see a lot of species of fish, plus a nurse shark!

Culminating with my birthday spent with new friends in downtown West Palm Beach, we couldn’t be happier with the relaxed and unscheduled vibe that cruising has brought to us once again. Too bad it won’t last, as in the next episode it’s time to bring EOL back home to Indiantown Marina for finishing touches before we ready to cruise full time.

Cheers from our shakedown!

From the Boat Graveyard to Sailing Once Again

We’re sailing!!!! At long last!!!

Who would have guess that once again our original plans did not work out as intended, and our sailing was pushed back one more day. No problem though, as we found a perfect spot to anchor next to Peanut Island and the Palm Beach inlet.

Between our first few days there, we were able to enjoy some people watching, a solar eclipse, getting into some Caribbean clear waters, and of course, getting our sails up for the first time! And what a magical moment it was.

Cheers from our shakedown!
