Fat Deer Key to Pumpkin Key

We covered 54NM of Gulf waters stirred milky green by many days of strong east winds.

The 20+ knot east winds continued through the day today and forced us to motor sail under a double reefed main for the majority of our time underway.  The forecast is calling for a reduction in the speed of the winds tomorrow.  Our Pumpkin Key anchorage positions us well to jump out into Hawk Channel via Angelfish Creek if the winds will allow, or to continue up Biscayne Bay to Miami.  Either way we will continue we will turn northward tomorrow and begin up the east coast of Florida.
