“Linger a Little”

(Anchored -Middle River, Ft Lauderdale, Florida) This is the wise advice we got from our new friend’s Steve and Truust. We met Steve and Truust while out for a paddle in our Ft Lauderdale anchorage (we’re ready to go to the Bahamas just waiting for a weather window). Steve and Truust own a 46 foot […]
