Rolling Stones and Sailors

Living on a boat has a lot of advantages - one of which is the ability to change neighborhoods with the casting off of the lines.

For the last two months I've been docked at the Fort Pierce City Marina and it's been great. The water is clear, there is always something going on here, I have a good friend in the slip next to me, and I love the Saturday morning Farmers Market. There's an old saying, "A rolling stone gathers no moss..." I guess the equivalent saying for sailors should be, "A moving boat gathers no barnacles." (That's not really true but it sounds good). So, in two weeks, Annie and I will be moving again.

Sunset Bay Marina had a year long waiting list for liveaboards and because it is only five minutes from my work, (my current marina is 18.2 miles from work), I decided to put my name on the waiting list. Sunset Bay is a very nice marina on par with my current marina.  Amazingly, I was on the list for only two days when the Dockmaster called and said he had an opening. So, we set the date and as of the 25th, I will change neighborhoods. (Big plus, it's actually less expensive).

The trip is 26.5 nautical miles and will be documented via actioncam timelapse, (I hope it works this time).

Here are some shots of my new neighborhood in two weeks.

Fair seas and God bless!
