The End Of Our Adventure - 29 Jun

Mike: Soul Healer arrived at Port Everglades in the early afternoon. She stayed offshore for about 1/2 hour to allow a thundercell to pass and then proceeded to the 17th St. bridge. The clearance is reported to be about 55' which is what we figured our height, not including VHF antenna had to be close to. The bridge will open on demand on the hour and half hour. Calling the bridge at 1:55pm got the lady operator to insist we come closer and read the bridge height from the scale provided at the bridge's base. It showed between 53' and 54', so again the request was made to open the bridge. Now she came back with that the next opening would now be 2:30pm.

Continuing on to Hall Of Fame Marina and our slip was straight forward and didn't really cause any difficulties, save for not really knowing where it was. There's a lot of docks in those waters on the intercoastal. We asked for directions and they provided some guidance by having someone stand at the end of their dock waving their arms. Anyway, boat's safely tied up and the packing begins for our crew.

It's been an exciting month. It seems that we were leaving the BVI only yesterday, but looking over our log shows all the places that we've been to. And all of the incredible places visited during our approximte 1100nm voyage.

Well done, you guys! By now you'll have gotten your land-legs back again and will be half way to Ontario. We're in southern Alberta on our way to the left coast, so we'll see ya when we get back in a couple of weeks.
Cheers! -- Ben and Jo

I echo Ben & Jo's comments. I have thoroughly enjoyed "accompanying" you on your journey through your nearly daily postings. We'll look forward to catching up with you when you're back in T.O. Again, congratulations on on a flawless voyage!
All the best, Peter (& Beth)
