Travel Day: Palm Beach, FL to Key West

ODOMETER: 80,549 | TODAY’S MILES: 243 | MILES TRAVELED: 2,604

 

by Grant

“On the road again, Just can’t wait to get on the road again!” And we’re off to the Keys! 

We hit the road as early as possible to get a head start and drive down 95 onto US 1. This is an amazing part of the world and we absolutely love the trip to the southernmost tip of the U.S. The drive down through the Keys is amazing. Island after island is connected by bridges to make the archipelago complete. 

The last island is Key West (always thought it should be called “Key South”). We have booked a site for three weeks at Boyd’s Campground and reached our site at about 3:30pm. It was windy in the Keys, but still warm with fresh winds blowing off the Gulf.

We situated ourselves in a tight little corner spot and enjoyed a walk with the hounds on the waterfront on the western side of the campground. This campground is quite big and crammed tight, but has a nice feel.

We explore a little with the dogs and settle in for a quiet night. The rigs here are more in keeping with our well worn bus.

There are a few expensive motorhomes, but the majority are middle of the road RVs, 5th Wheels and caravans. 

We’re collectively looking forward to exploring Key West tomorrow.

This is an amazing part of the world and we absolutely love the trip to the southernmost tip of the U.S. The drive down through the Keys is amazing. Island after island is connected by bridges to make the archipelago complete.

Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Leg 3: Bora Bora to Fiji Passage

Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Leg 3: Bora Bora to Fiji Passage

After having waited in French Polynesia for two and a half months, we excitedly sailed out of Bora Bora around 7:30 am on Saturday, September 4th. Like the rest of French Polynesia, Bora Bora was in COVID lockdown, and we had spent the last week waiting for our departure paperwork to go through all the requisite bureaucratic channels. This required multiple trips to the local gendarmerie (police station), where Grant quickly befriended the two kind and helpful officers, Alex and Bruno.

Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Leg 2: Mo’orea to Bora Bora

It took us about 24 hours to get from Mo’orea to Bora Bora on August 28 2021. Like the rest of French Polynesia, Bora Bora was in COVID lockdown, and we spent a  week there waiting for our departure paperwork to go through all the requisite bureaucratic channels. This required multiple trips to the local gendarmerie (police station), where Grant quickly befriended the two kind and helpful officers, Alex and Bruno.

We made trips to get water, fuel and provisions, but apart from that we had to stay on the boat. We passed the time snorkeling (saw a giant moray eel!) and inventing new water sports.

Once we received our exit paperwork, we were finally free to leave for Fiji.
