Hobe Sound to Delray Beach FL

We have not even reached Fort Lauderdale and as always, the ICW waterway, between Hobe Sound and Delray Beach, is a warm up of what you will see farther down the way. Hobe Sound is near perfect with a narrow barrier island on the ocean beach, then one road running north and south, and the home lots reach the sound side where they dock their mega yachts or fishing boats. Here you have the best of both water worlds: Ocean Beach and Bay Sound Dock! OMG.

The homes are so beautiful here and with much more land and space than Ft. Lauderdale. To me, this is THE place for millionaires. People like: Bert Reynolds, Tiger Woods, Greg Normand, and Gary Player live here! So it looks like I know how to judge a location 🙂

Buddy Boat Sans Souci Too 

Today was the day of bridges, with 15 lift bridges and we ended up waiting a total of 2 hrs and 20 minutes over the course of the 43 mile day for bridges to open on their schedules. It can be stressful waiting in front of a bridge with a 1+ knot current, but lucky for us, it was on our bow, so we could simply set in front of the bridge and keep powering into the current flowing at us. It is like setting in a river.

After Hobe sound we transited, Jupiter, Juno, North Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Lake Worth, South Palm Beach and Delray Beach where we dropped anchor in Lake Pelican! This lake is surrounded by beautiful homes and is 10 feet deep with a 6 foot shoal at the entrance. Lucky for us we only need 4′ 6″ of water so we passed into the lake! No one here on anchor except us.
