Key Biscayne to Ft. Lauderdale
The trip along the ICW took us through Miami, Port Everglades where all the cruise ships are and into Ft. Lauderdale.
Dubbed the Yachting capital of the world, Ft. Lauderdale is overflowing with amazing boats. From small boats to incredible yachts, there is so much to see. We are staying at the Las Olas Municiple Marina which is right on the ICW, which offers a front row seat for all the activity on the waterway. It is 2 blocks from the beach, and surounded by great restaurants.
We have caught up with some fellow loopers, Dan & Biddy on "Biddy & the Beast", George & Kathy on "Spey" and Jerry & Joann on "Morningside". We met Dan & Biddy in Kagawon, Ontario for the first time, and George & Kathy in Hardin, Ill on the river, we haven't seen George and Kathy since the first meeting, so it was nice to catch up with them. This is the first time we met "Morningside" and we have seen Dan & Biddy off and on through out our trip.
