Glenn’s Photo of us as seen from his balcony….very cool

Delray Beach to Fort Lauderdale, Florida on the ICW presents a photographic delight, especially in the early am light. Lucky for us, we started off the day with an email from a fellow Island Packet 31 owner who sent us a photo of our boat as seen from his high rise balcony. That was VERY COOL. We stepped outside and looked around and sorta figured out the angle. We exchanged emails and shared our departure time and Glenn was able to take this fantastic photo of Island Spirit as we headed south on the waterway. THANK YOU GLENN, the photos are a real treasure.

Waiting for the lift and backing against the current

Today was also another day of 10 lift bridges in about 22 miles as we planned to make Fort Lauderdale our next stop. The homes and the mega yachts along this section of the waterway are really incredible. The success of so many people and the extreme wealth of so many people, all in one place, is hard to fully grasp. Today with the Internet it is easy to Google a Yacht name and find out who the owner is and what their businesses are. Many famous people call this area home and it is very obvious.

I shot 130 photos today, and many I have taken before. Please enjoy this photo essay of the waterway in are around Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All of these homes are SINGLE homes, not condos or complexes….SINGLE HOMES!
