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.

Back to salt water and sea level.

Last night Rick and Cynthia from SV Reverie joined us for dinner on C'est la Vie.  We enjoyed their company and had fun sharing boat stories. 

The Park Service maintains a campground at St Lucie Lock with a few first come first serve boat slips.  $24/night for the slip, potable water, 30 amp power, and showers is a good deal.

Due to low water levels in the lake, the lock is only running 3 times a day - 07, 13, & 19.  So the morning came early on C'est la Vie.  Occasional showers escorted the dawn and we were the only vessel seeking  to lock through in the morning.

Our elevation dropped 11 feet in the lock as we returned to salt water and sea level on the east coast of Florida.
