COMMENT: Beach House – DOCKED – New River City Marina – Ft. Lauderdale, Florida – USA
We had lightening and thunder for the last two hours – a classic South Florida Thunderstorm. We saw 3.9 knots of current as a maximum in the Gulf Stream running south to north.
Once we entered Port Everglades, we came north up the Intercostal Waterway (ICW) to the New River and have docked at the public marina on the very narrow, \”New River\” in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. We called customs and will go to immigration tomorrow. All is well, we\’ll be here till at least Tuesday then move marinas (we hope).
It\’s nice here – two bridges en route opened for us – 17th Street and 3rd Avenue.
