North or South?

All went fairly well on our shake-out cruise. A few minor glitches but nothing I couldn't fix myself. It was good we were aboard Istaboa as one of our ACs had a clogged drain line and condensation overflowed it's pan. Mel woke me up to point out there was water dripping from the ceiling. After a semi-frantic scurry we figured it out but not before soaking one of our ceiling panels.
Luckily, a local company had some of the material and the repaired panel is already on the boat.

So it's decision time. North or South? Good reasons to head in both directions and one has yet to overcome the other — I guess we'll figure that out when we leave.

Happy problems.

Beach Days

So every morning Little Mud and I take off for a good walk down Ocean Blvd then return north via Jupiter's Dog Beach.

I've said it before, Jupiter has a great beach for dogs. Unleashed, smiling, splashing, swimming, running... the canines and their humans have a blast.

Radar has reached the stage in his life where he likes the beach, but, "put me in the car and drive me to it" is what the look in his eyes seems to say.

Young Mud? Always ready for a long walk.

There's a boat trip coming up soon. Mel and I are still working out the details, but the beach walks and our times at home are just as enjoyable. So, it's all good.

Bird's Eye View - North Palm Beach Marina

The onSpot guys have installed a new web-cam at North Palm Beach Marina. Kinda fun to watch real time video of the ICW at Parker Bridge.
