All of us were jazzed, too. The St. Lucie Lock was open today, two days ahead of schedule.

First time it's been used in months!
Joining us throughout the day was The Lower Place. We chatted about anchorages and an upcoming blow from the south. All of use wanted to stay put for a couple of nights. They were going to check out Hoggs Cove while we investigated Manatee Pocket. Around that time another buddy, Apres Sail, saw us on Nebo and texted they, too, were headed for Manatee Pocket. Sounded like a plan.

Sadly, we didn't explore it. We headed
out in the morning.
We'd been told Peck Lake was a decent anchorage, and Apres Sail was passing by it. They checked it out and dropped the hock. We joined them about 30 minutes later.
Then, there was docktails!
