North Palm Beach – Old Port Cove Marina

Had a good ride north from Lighthouse Point Yacht & Racquet Club to Old Port Cove Marina.  The last several miles were on an area of the ICW that is essentially a large bay that is probably 1/4 to 1/2 mile across.  While the weather has turned cooler we are traveling north and that is into the wind so it is nice and warm in the cockpit.

We waited for probably 5 bridges.  None of the waits were long but in the 10 minute range each one so it added close to an hour to the trip.

Old Port Cove Marina is a very up-to-date marina with floating docks.  It is part of a gated community with very nice hirise condo buildings all around.  Lots of big boats around which I guess is not suprising for the Palm Beach area.

Candy is not real happy because it is a long walk to the grass areas and the last 2 mornings have been very chilly, in the low 50’s.

We had a great visit with my sister Jan and her husband Jim. They are in Jupiter for the week and enjoying the warmer weather. We went to dinner last night at the Sandpiper Cove Restaurant right at the marina. Good food and good service.

We are going to stay here thru Thursday waiting for mail from at home and then Friday we will move north to Fort Pierce.
