EXPLORING THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

Saturday was a beautiful sunny day all day in our part of Florida.  Many times in the summer you need to make plans early so the you will be finished before the afternoon rain storms.

Saturday we left the Ft. Pierce City Marina and went north on the Intracoastal.   We continued to cruise north and enjoyed the scenery.  My only concern was allowing enough time to return.  We ended up boating 55 miles north.  Beautiful clear open spaces  we could see Melbourne and the Space coast ahead on the chart.

I really did not want to stop and neither did Phyllis.

Next Saturday we a doing a rendezvous at a spoil island with my sister and their boat.

Your explorations sound like a lot of fun!  Are there certain parts that you are not allowed to explore?  Any dangers of ending up in international waters?

Good morning, Grant... sounds like an amazing day... as you know, I suffer from motion sickness on water so very sad hearing about your day out on the water that it's not something I can enjoy.

Hi Grant,
What a great day for you and Phyllis!  My husband and I enjoyed many days (and nights) on the water. There's nothing quite like sleeping on the water.

Larry and Sheila - yes, and by the way I have reciprocal rights for Freedom Boat Club and I love boating on the Sound.

Brian - not on the Intracoastal.  That was created in WWII to avoid German U boats.  It goes from Carolina all along the inner coast to Texas.

Nina - It is had to get excited about something when you get sea sick.

Wayne - I am trying my best.  I want to get over to John's Pass Treasure Island - St Pete and go by my grandparents old waterfront house in St. Pete Beach.

Hi Kat - and I was red as a beet.  I should have worn a hat and put on sunscreen.

Will - the worst is when it comes down when you are coming into the marina.  You can't see the other boats.

Hey Grant, you should have headed up just a bit further. Squid Lips at Eau Gallie Causeway...great place to park the boat and grab a cold beer with some live music.

Hi Grant,

My husband was a huge boat nut from 1972 through the early 2000s.  He would have loved to do this.  I remember how relaxing it was when on the water.  Your planning not only makes it enjoyable, but the planning for weather is so critical.

Hi Grant- we spent many hours on the Intracoastal. Our home was on a canal just off of the Intracoastal. What always amazed us was going by a home being demolished and neither one of us could remember what was there!  Watch those buoy markers at night!!

Hi Kathy - one of the rules on the boat club is no boating at night.  You deal with restrictions but all you pay is a monthly fee and the gas.  No ownership or insurance.
