The wind blew harder last night than what either Chuck or I expected. About 4 am, I heard a noise that woke me. I thought Chuck was trying to start the diesel but the sound wasn't quite right. Surely Happy Hours II must be dragging anchor! When I went up into the cockpit to check things out, he was on the bow of the boat. Here, a noise woke him up also and when he went topside to investigate, Chuck discovered the hook on the bridle had come off and was banging against the hull of the boat. Of course when we went back to bed, I just laid there and listened to the wind howl....
In the morning, when we got up to leave the Jensen Beach anchorage, there was a chop on the Indian River. This didn't stop the kids out in their mini sailboats. There were so many of them that it looked like a mini regatta!! They didn't mind the wind at all.
Our plans today are to go to Lake Worth. I reserved 2 docks yesterday at the Old Point Cove marina. (This is where Tyger Woods previously kept his yacht.) Lynn and Sally from Southern Belle are meeting up with us to cross over together to the Bahamas.

Scenes along the ICW today:
|House at Jupiter|
|House on a barge!|
|Thought this was 1 house.|
|Yachts in front of houses!|
|Floating Hot dog shop|
|Condos? at Jupiter|
This is a very nice place to stay. Most of the boats are yachts and large sport fishers. I found out that Tyger Woods does not own this marina but he use to keep his boat here. Oh, his ex kept hers here too!
Busy night of washing clothes and making plans to provision tomorrow morning for the next adventure of crossing over to the Bahamas!!
