Day 4-April 3-Mile 1017-going Intercoastal

4 04 2012

Got up early and spent our first full day on the Intercoastal waterway.  What lovely weather we’ve had.  Our slow pace allows us to view the beautiful homes along the way.   You get that “peaceful easy feeling”  and appreciate the beauty of nature.  Hobe Sound along Jupiter Island is almost totally natural.   We stopped at Fort Pierce and pulled into the Fort Pierce city marina on the Indian river.  Of c0urse I get very nervous when we are docking, but Ed did a great job.  The staff were very helpful at the marina and they even have a Tiki Bar and restaurant  (yeah, no cooking tonight).   We have loved listening to 97.1 Ocean on the radio.  There is nothing like it in Canada.

A word about living on a boat…we love it!  It’s kind of like playing house; it makes you realize how little you really need in life to be happy.  It’s been a wonderful experience.  We are even thinking about buying another boat and leaving it in Key West.  Since this boat is our home I feel like I’m travelling in a compact universe.  I guess I’m a gypsy at heart.  Good night.

Hi Huguette! My mom passed this on to me, and it’s been a pleasure to follow along with your journey so far. Good luck with the rest of your trip – I’ll be keeping track through this blog, and hope to see you at some point this summer.

I love your comments about living on the boat – it’s true that we need so little to be happy.
