Aboard the Sailing Vessel

February 22, 2004


Isle of Venice,
FT. Lauderdale

The weather was beautiful when we woke up this morning. There was a clear, crisp blue sky and the water in the canals did not have a ripple. We decided to take a dinghy ride around the Isle of Venice. This and one other island are the only two islands that permit live-aboard boaters in Ft. Lauderdale. From what we are told, these transient docks will disappear within a year or so as high dollor condo's take their place along the waterfront.

Jeff was on the aft-deck of Sangaela when we rode pass. It was Jeff and his wife Anne who first told us about the wonderful dockage along the Isle of Venice.

There was no sign of activity when we passed Super Star. We all had a rather late night, last night, so John, Jan and Keito may have been sleeping in.
Shibumi's top-sides and transom were pretty grungy from spending a week in the Rybovich Spencer Boatyard.. that dictated my activity for the balance of the morning.

They say, "Cruising via sailboat is nothing more than the opportunity to work on your boat in some exotic locations."
