(visited by Captain Peter)

26-Dec-2007 -- Southbound from Searsport (Maine) and underway to the Mississippi River today we entered the Straits of Florida. Five and a half years elapsed since I was here on this coast the last time, and finally I could visit 27N 80W under better conditions.

After a Christmas Eve in quite rough weather on the latitude of about Philadelphia/Baltimore today the weather is excellent. Temperatures in Maine were around the 30's (0° C), and this was not too pleasant.

Here off Florida the sea is calm and looking on my weather forecast in "Met-Manager" gives "blue" for the rest of the voyage. Blue means slight seas, green means rather rough, yellow is already very unpleasant, and read colored areas are a thing to be avoided by all means.

The views from this Confluence are the following:

To SSW there is Palm Beach,
To SW there is Jupiter, and
To the W and NW we see Stuart.
