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.

Pump the breaks - severe thunderstorm ahead

We planned to anchor off Coco, FL this evening, but were stopped about 3NM short when conditions rapidly deteriorated to our north and west.  When NOAA posted a warning of the severe thunderstorm moving southeast we moved eastward out of the channel into 7 feet of water.  The anchor set firmly and I added a generous extra helping of chain.  Better to be out here with plenty of swing room and no other vessels to worry about; than crowded onto the Coco Anchorage.
The worst of the initial stormed passed to our west, but thunder continues to rumble around the area.
We will call it a day, and press on to Titusville tomorrow.
