Fort Lauderdale 26th January

Well we are finally within striking distance of the Bahamas. We had a fairly uneventful journey down the rest of the ICW to Los Olas in Fort Lauderdale.
There were so many bridges to go under, request openings and get the timing just right otherwise you lost at least half an hour on each opening. It was interesting but we decided that probably life aboard a canal boat in France will not be an option for us. We are really looking forward to having a proper sail – hopefully some time soon. So far the solar panels are giving us a fair bit of extra power – that is because the sun does shine here. The difference in the temperature is quite marked. Won’t go on a length about it as we know it has been pretty darned cold back home.
