The young crew's final sailing trip on Oasis during their vacation in Florida! By 08:30 Sunday morning, Oasis was on the go on the ICW. Light wind and cloudy in the morning and by mid morning, most of the clouds had already dissipated, it was going to be another gorgeous day! The captain sailed Oasis from Fort Lauderdale to Hollywood in two hours. The Captain and First Mate found Fort Lauderdale too noisy and too busy. It was nice for an overnight stay but they decided to bring Oasis a bit further south. Sailing on the ICW early in the morning and specially on a Sunday, the Captain knew that there would barely be any boat traffic, but not less boats! Further south of Fort Lauderdale, there were more mega yachts and bigger than the previous day. Oasis and the crew pass by the Fort Lauderdale Cruise Ship Terminal, there were six cruise ships docked at the terminal and Oasis sailed about 200 feet from one of them and the crew couldn't believe the enormity of those boats. Further down, on the ICW, Oasis crossed a couple of boats but it was the Beneteau Sense 50 from Montreal that really catch the Captain's and Luc's eye. She was a real beauty! The captain and First mate had visited one in Annapolis, Maryland in late September. At no later than 10:30, Luc docked Oasis at the Loggerhead Club & Marina in Hollywood. The crew were greeted by the marina's attendant and everyone was very happy to have arrived and docked early.
Luc, Denise and the two kids took T-Ben, the dinghy, to explore the marina's surroundings while Jean Guy & Roselind went to register Oasis at the Club House. The couple were really impressed with the amenities of this marina. After lunch, the crew walked to the heated swimming pool and only returned late afternoon for preparation for Alexia's Birthday. The young family was leaving Florida for their journey back home on Tuesday and she was turning four on Wednesday, so Pepere and Memere wanted to celebrate her birthday on Oasis. After dinner, everyone was treated to some birthday cake and Alexia opened her gifts. Later at night, the two kids were put to bed and the little girl was very satisfied of her birthday party on Pepere's and Memere's sailboat. The young parents and grandparents spend the rest of their evening under twinkling stars sipping wine and chatting!
