Departed our Lake Sylvia anchorage at around 8:40 am. Another day of bridges, however, it wasn't as bad as previous days. There is one fixed bridge just north of Miami that has us a little concerned. The height of the bridge and the height of our mast are within a couple feet of each other. We had departed a little later in the morning in order to put us down there around low tide. As it turned out, we made very good time and had to anchor just north of the bridge for a couple of hours. The anchorage was a little rolly, but nice. The weather was absolutely perfect!

You can see the size of the ship by looking at the two guys standing at the entrance on the ramp.

As we passed into a part of Biscayne Bay, there was a park that had a little lighthouse.
