Happy Girl

At Sea
25 21.22N 080 12.32 W

We left Marathon around noon.  It was a lovely day.  Warm, Sunny. Breezy.  The waters were the Keys Turquoise color.  Tarwathie is a happy girl to be back in her element.  Her crew likes it too.

Now it is past midnight.  We are - well you can see in the picture where we are. (Sorry for the sideways picture)

We will pass Miami around 8AM.  We are headed for Fort Pierce Inlet.

The new AIS is working fine :)

One thing we won't get is a free ride from the Gulf Stream.   Leaving Marathon, the wind was well ahead of the beam, so we elected to stay in The Hawk Channel where the seas would be less.  Up Miami way, The Gulf Stream seems to be further East than normal.  We may miss it.  Oh well, nice trip anyhow.

Actually, we love sailing out here in The Hawk Channel.  It seems that the winds are always favorable, and the seas gengle -- at least when we come out here.  The water is beautiful, and there are no ships.
