Champ III: Going Places

The adventure starts here.

Fort Pierce City Marina, March 31, 2013 (Easter Sunday)

Just getting around to posting our trip from Old Port Cove Marina to Fort Pierce City Marina.

Friday was another great weather day in Florida. We were underway about 8:30 and there were no bridges that we would need to wait for in this 48 mile trip.

We took pictures leaving Old Port Cove and it included a pictures of some of the yachts in the harbor, Our tired crew, West Palm Beach skyline and some of the homes along the ICW. Lenore was also able to get a picture of a bird nest along the ICW.

The next set of photos are the Fort Pierce City Marina which is a very nice marina. We were here for the Farmers Market on Saturday and they also had a Craft Market Saturday morning. After the 2 markets were over they set up for the concert they had running from 3:00 to 11:00 yesterday. The music wasn’t necessarily our style but it wasn’t radical by our standards. A lot of people were here for the concert. They had 2 stages so while one was playing the other one was getting setup for their turn.

Today was a little quiter except we were able to get together with cousin Shirley and her husband Ron. Had a great visit and had lunch at the Tiki Bar looking over the ICW. They have just bought a place in Fort Pierce and they have come down to start decorating it to their tastes. It was really fortunate that the schedules worked out so we could get together.

After leaving the Tiki Bar we saw a charter fishing boat that had come in were putting their catch up on the board for pictures before cleaning the fish. Of course the pelicans were out in force hoping for some scraps from the cleaning.

Tomorrow we are moving north to Melbourne so check back for another post.
