We got up while still dark and hauled anchor about 20 minutes before sunrise and were underway. It was nice to be the only boat on the water for a while.
We had picked out a couple of potential anchorages near the ICW we were aiming toward. When we got there we found that the constant 15 mph wind from the south east was stirring up the waters such that anchoring in either of them would have been bouncy. We decided to go just a little way off of the ICW to Indian Harbor Beach and found a very nice open anchorage there. The wind continued to blow at 15 mph but the waters were much smoother here.
We had been fortunate to have a current boost most of the day’s run so only had to travel about 6.5 hours to make our anchorage. The rest of the day was spent enjoying life aboard at anchorage.
