Watch episode 97 here!
We continue cruising Southbound along the Atlantic ICW as we leave Eau Gallie Yacht Basin, stop at Pine Island, then Fort Pierce, and finally arrive at a really cool anchorage called Peck Lake.
While in Ft Pierce, we had a really cool visit with a few of our fans. It’s really humbling to have folks enjoy our videos enough that they want to see MORE of us. Well – maybe it’s just the ladies. Surely, it can’t be the weirdo.
We also had a good chance to get to know our new homemade dinghy a little better. We’re really enjoying it so far and it’s proving to be a very useful, multi-purpose tender.
Finally, we wrap up this post with our arrival in Peck Lake. REALLY cool anchorage! The beach is just on the other side of a 100 yard wide spit of land, and the anchorage is really well protected as well.
Oh yeah! We also got to meet up with Billy and Sierra from Tula’s Endless Summer while at Peck Lake. Much more to come about that little visit in a future post.

Today we got up and left the dock. As we were leaving the basin, we had some dolphins at the bow. We had a nice motor today. We anchored at Pine Island, one of our favorite anchorages on the Florida ICW.
Ben and Molly sailed the dinghy around the anchorage. I read my book. We had a nice sun downer beer and juice in the cockpit, then we had tacos for dinner. Ben and I watched a movie.

We left Pine Island this morning and had more dolphins with us today. At the end of the day, we anchored in Fort Pierce.
Ben went to the fuel dock and filled up the jerry cans. After he got back, we went back to the Marina for dinner with some new friends who watch the videos. We had a really fun night, and really enjoyed meeting new people.
We also decorated our Christmas Tree tonight.

We got up and moved to Peck Lake today.
We anchored next to Tula’s Endless Summer. Ben sailed over to say hi and they jumped into the dinghy with him. Jetty, their dog, did not like them leaving and she jumped in after them. She was trying to follow them as they sailed away. They had a dramatic rescue and plucked Jetty out of the water.
We had a nice evening on the boat. Ben wiggled at Molly’s loose tooth. No luck getting it out. I read my book and enjoyed the comfort of our cockpit on one of our new Sport-A-Seat chairs. I love these chairs!
