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.

Beaufort not Beaufort

Made good time yesterday covering 66NM,  by getting lucky with the tides and running dawn to dusk. 

We pushed hard to make the 11 am opening of the Ben Sawyer Bridge.  Passing the bridge, which only opens on the hour, provided us access to Charleston Harbor.  We made a quick transit of the harbor motorsailing under a full genny.  Unfortunately this would be the first and last time we set the sails on Sunday.  The remainder of our afternoon was spent motoring with a pack of sailboats southward in the ICW.

The daylight faded into a gorgeous low country sunset as we found an anchorage in the upper South Edisto River. 


  1. I intended to end the post above with a snarky closing about us headed on to Beaufort, SC not Beaufort, NC.
