Anchored off Key Biscayne

We left Key West yesterday morning and hoped to make it to Fort Lauderdale by this evening, but the southeasterly wind that was forecast didn't arise, so we had wind on the nose and made very slow progress all day yesterday and last night. Finally, today we got into the Gulf Stream a bit and increased our speed, but it still wasn't enough to make it to Fort Lauderdale before dark, so we'll finish the trip tomorrow.

We'll be meeting up again with Jim on Orinoco, who is already there on a mooring. Indigo was planning to leave Key West today for Fort Lauderdale, so we hope to see Greg and Kathy again too. We exchanged cell phone numbers with them to make it easier to connect.
