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.

Lunch guest.

The forecast predicted fine winds for sailing across Lake Okeechobee on Monday.  So we awoke early and motored away from St Lucie Lock well before dawn.  We cleared Port Mayaca Lock mid morning and found the lake a windless mirrorstretching out to the horizon. 

We have now transited Lake Okeechobee many times aboard C'est la Vie, but have yet to sail across.  This day proved no different.  We set the auto pilot and let the motor hum along.

We did have a guest for lunch while moving northward in the rim canal.  A monarch butterfly landed on Bud's sandwich.
