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.

WOW - 2013 Already.

The Outward Bound Season here in the Everglades finally feels like it is gaining internal inertia.  Starting up down here in the 'Glades is akin to cranking up a cold, long idle engine.  Some years it seems to simply turn right over purring smoothly with little maintenance required.  Other seasons hours of TLC, grimy maintenance, and busted knuckles yield a blue smoke belching steel hulk that requires a constant hand on the throttle.  Yep, this season was the latter.

The Everglades Outward Bound Program is in full swing through the first week of February and then begins the slow taper down to its conclusion late March.  Hopefully this post will mark the beginning of a uptick in frequency of some free time for Anne and I, progress on boat projects, and and increase in the frequency of C'est la Vie blog posts.

Time to smell the roses and head out for a evening paddle board session.

Thanks to Shane A. for capturing and sharing these images of paddling boarding off the Sunset Island Docks.
