The New Year brings a new coastline for the Mainship Many Moons. More than 3,000 miles into her journey, she is anchored tonight near Cape Canaveral on the east coast of Florida. Jeff and Josh have travelled 160 miles, crossing the state of Florida from west to east via the Okeechobee Waterway. Their adventures have included five locks, a crowded river “pocket,” sunshine in the 80s, and a return to saltwater. They will now follow the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway northward. Photos and captions below.

Jeff: I have received notice that the Okeechobee is closed, or about to be closed, for three months.

Yep. This is the reason that Jeff went through the Saint Lucie Lock before New Year’s. Thank you for the kind note!
