Voyages: The Keys

By Craig and Nancy McAllaster

In January of 1999 Nancy and I left Port Canaveral for a trip to the Keys. Unfortunately the cold weather and continual fronts made it impossible to go off-shore and save time. So an extended trip down the intercoastal ending in Biscayne Bay. A ten day adventure with a lot of time to think and enjoy "Voyager." Our C34 really proved itself on the trip and was a real joy. A lot of bridges to go through - many of which are on timed schedules which really slows things down.

Looking down the Intercoastal near Fort Pierce. A busy time during the weekday in January.
The public marina at Vero Beach, inexpensive moorings and a lot of Winter residents.
