Debbie and I enjoyed two months of warm weather in the Palm City area and then on February 1st we set sail for Miami. We wanted to experience at least once the Inter coastal waterway that runs along the east coast of the USA. So we left Palm City and motored south towards Miami. There is no sailing in the ICW and no night navigation. There are many bridges along the route that cause many delays and interesting navigation situations.
There are approximately 55 bridges from the Florida/Georgia border to Miami. Here are some of the different types.

Also along the way are many large homes and many meta yachts. Very interesting scenery.

After three days of ICW motoring we arrived in Miami. We had been asked by Antares ( the company that built our boat) to use Bellaluna as the Miami boat show boat. We arrived in plenty of time to detail and ready her for the show.

We then spent an enjoyable week touring the boat show and the Miami area.
