Heading west for a few days...

We are crossing the Okeechobee Waterway to Ft. Meyer. We will then head south to Key West. This route will give us an opportunity to see a little of the west coast of Florida, and allow us to visit the Keys while working our way back north. We are in Indian Town today, and will cross Lake Okeechobee tomorrow. We are in a tiny marina in a very small slip...a little difficult to get in to. It will be a little difficult to get out of tomorrow. We will be leaving at first light.
It will be interesting to see a more rural part of the sunshine state.
Statue in Stuart, Florida. My friend Rodger loves art.
The produce market...really convenient for cruisers.

Sunset in Stuart
One more...
Great picture which brought back parents had one of these in 1965. Several family vacations were taken in that car...good times and good memories.

Oh yea, I still have it... one and a half miles to the liquor store.

Mooring field in Stuart
Shirl on duty waiting for the lock to open.
No problem for us...after the Erie Canal. We will go through five locks on the Okeechobee Waterway.

Shirl taking over while I took a break.
We passed this in the water today...a first on this trip.
A "deadhead" floating in the waterway...may be connected, may not. You have to watch for these.
A tough slip to get in to.
