April 8, 2015  Day 138 South for Winter
At Anchor, Lake Worth
Palm Beach, FL

We departed Ft. Lauderdale at 7:45 this morning and headed back down the New River and then north on the ICW.  We traveled for eight hours and over the course of the day had to time the scheduled opening of 15 bridges.  It went fairly well and we did not have to wait long for the openings.  We were pleased to find fairly light boat traffic today.

A mega yacht for the mega house!
Our trip took us past Pompano Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, and Palm Beach. The ICW is narrow on the first part of the trip and then widens into lakes.  Large estates sized homes line the water, many with mega yachts docked in front of them.  There are many canals that provide homes instant access to the water.
One of many canals that join the ICW
We arrived at our anchorage at Lake Worth at 3:45.  It is a huge anchorage and there were many boats anchored with us, including two mega yachts!

Barges go first

We will continue heading north tomorrow!


Last bridge of the day!
