Bender's Chronicles June 2009

Ft. Lauderdale – Boca Raton – Pompano Beach – Lantana – Peck Lake – Stuart – Merritt Island – New Smyrna – Palm Coast – Fernandina Beach – Wahoo Creek, GA – Hilton Head, SC – Wadmalaw Island, SC This will be just a quickie to give you a brief glimpse of how June has filled our hours. Seems each month’s entry is shorter and shorter. In Ft. Lauderdale, we spent the first few days in Las Olas Marina, a block from the beach and on Las Olas Boulevard where shoppers can while away the hours in the many upscale shops as well and plenty of places to spend money on Ocean Blvd along the beach. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. Cruising up the waterway north of Ft. Lauderdale, the opulence of the jillion dollar homes is eye-popping. It seems each home-owner tried to out-do his neighbor with a monument to themselves!!! Peck Lake was our anchorage one evening so we swam to the little spit of land dividing that body of water from the Atlantic Ocean and walked over to the beach…
