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.

Closing in on Marco Island.

As yesterday aged into twilight, the NOAA forecast became less favorable for sailing offshore through the night.  We elected to call it a day and anchor for the night.  We passed Punta Rassa, entered San Carlos Bay, and dropped the hook as the last light drained from the sky.

We greeted the dawn light today while riding an outgoing tide from the bay into the Gulf of Mexico.  Since entering the Gulf we have been motor sailing close hauled under the main.  

We have put astern 30NM and are currently 5NM out from Marco Island.  If the day continues to go as planned, then we should make it home to Sunset Island this evening.
