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.

An overnight trip to Cape Lookout

Our first couple of days in Beaufort were a blur of reuniting with friends; morning visits to coffee shops; a road trip to survey a sail boat with Trish; and ticking some things off the to-do list.  After two days tied to the Beaufort City Docks we were ready to escape the noise, congestion, and hustle.   With Trish as crew we caught the ebbing tide out Beaufort Inlet and took advantage of some wonderful 15 knot south winds.  The 15NM from Beaufort to Cape Lookout Bight passed quickly with each of us taking a turn at the helm.

Once the anchor hit the bottom we literally jumped into swimming mode.  The clear, salt waters buoyed our spirits and we spent over an hour inventing new wet exit techniques off C’est la Vie.

The remainder of the day passed blissfully in the bight… naps, reading, swimming to shore for beach exploration, beers, dinner, speed scrabble, and early to bed.
