Yesterday, Yara left for Stuart on a cold bright morning. Florida is gripped in an exceptional cold spell with temperatures dropping to the freeze point in the early morning. We have been sleeping with several layers of clothes on and even fleece hats - back to the middle ages!
We had a walk along the beach. We think these were Royal Terns - does anybody know?
UPS delivered the ordered charts and pilot books from Bluewater Charts at 0900 this morning so we left the mooring straight away to head further south and try to find the warmth. The first bridge looked very much like a cathedral.
Had an uneventful motor down the ICW - cold but blue skies with a following northerly wind. Are now anchored in 1.7 meters water in a very sheltered creek called Manatee Pocket. The sides of the creek are full of houses with expensive sports fishing boats and several marinas and lots of WiFi signals.
