SeaFever and Compass Rose decided to move on from Boca Chita of Friday 2.24, and anchored off Elliot Key, about 5 miles south (as the crow flies, but 10 miles after working our way through the channel that runs through Featherbed Banks.) You can see our course from Bakers Haulover, to Dinner Key, Boca Chita, and Elliott Key at Sea Fever's 'Spot' adventure:
I guess we are really in the Keys and I'm adjusting to th idea of being in shallow water. We are anchored in 7' (high tide) 5.5' (low tide) and I draw 5'. If you look over the side it looks like 2'.
A storm came in yesterday afternoon after we had a chance to do some snorkling. It rained hard for about 30 minutes and then the wind blew- all night- and it is still howling off and on. We plan to head to west of Key Largo today, but will have to see if the wind dies down first.
