Yesterday we cruised down to Miami and anchored at Belle Isle. The skyscrapers of Miami were all around us in their vibrant, flashing colors. One of them even had a huge scene of people dancing on it. Very strange to be anchored in a bay with a huge city around us.
Today we topped off with diesel, gas and water then sailed down to No Name Harbor in Biscayne Bay. As we were cruising down, dolphins graced us by swimming along for a bit. This was the closest we have seen them. They were about 3 feet from the side of our boat! The winds were nice for sailing today and the boys had fun in the cabin ‘standing straight up’ while Truansea was at an angle. This picture gives you an idea of how much our home tilts!
After we anchored in No Name Harbor, we saw the manatees again. Truly gentle giants.
We headed to shore to do a load of laundry, empty the garbage and take an outdoor shower.
We plan on leaving for Bimini at 3am. The weather looks promising for a crossing and there are lots of other boats here staged to cross as well. Hopefully we will be able to send out a post tomorrow night from Bimini!
