Okeechobee at Night

Port Mayaca
26 59.17 N 080 37.85 W

It is fun to think out of the box once in a while. We were planning on getting to Clewiston around 17 00 and anchoring for the night.

Instead we got the idea to keep going. One more hour of motoring and we made a turn into open water with 15 knots of wind 40 degrees off the bow. It made a very nice sail close hauled. After an hour, the sun went down. The moon and planets and stars are spectacular.

Now around 2200 we arrived totally mellowed. The wind is gone and we are anchored out in the lake. In the morning we can navigate into the water way.

Life is good. Opportunities like this must be seized. Carpe Diem.
