C'est la Vie is a 1966 Charlie Morgan 34.

Her home port is Everglades City, FL. Our typical cruising area is Southwest Florida, the Florida Keys, the Southeastern Atlantic Seaboard, and the Bahamas. We are C'est la Vie's third owners and purchased her in 2005. We continue to maintain and update this classic vessel.

Life in the anchorage

We are setting on two anchors, Bahamian Moor, at the west end of Taylor’s Creek.  To the east of us (the view in the image above) the anchorage is crowded with numerous boats taking up permanent residence on mooring balls.

Looking to our west we see the entrance to Taylors’s Creek and the Duke Marine Lab.  The marine lab runs a 24/7 web cam of the area – here is a link to the web cam.

To our north is the quaint, touristy Beaufort Downtown area.  It is a great area for tourists and cruisers alike.  Not to be missed is the NC Maritime Museum and adjacent wooden boat works.  The southern shore of Taylors Creek is formed by a series of low islands that make up the Rachael Carson National Estuarine Sanctuary.  From our anchorage we can row Origami or swim over to the island and walk on the beach.  Like many islands along the Outerbanks the Racheal Carson Sanctuary is home to a population of wild horses (see image below).

Other than the high volume of traffic, primarily from local tour boats and transient vessels, there are no complaints about our current residence.
