Re: east coast provisioning stops
At the north end of lake Worth Florida it is possible to anchor in good holding in a pocket of marker 27 [ I think that is the number ] Dinghy into the cut at the north end leading into little lake Worth. It is possible to beach the dink there by the bridge. There is a Publix on the west side of the bridge and some other shops.
This is an excellent place to provision the boat if heading out to the Bahamas as you can push your cart[s] down to the bridge.
This Publix sticks in my memory as I had a nervous breakdown there in the fresh vegetable section. Having been cruising down island for some years I arrived cleared in and was looking forward to my first salad with crisp lettuce for quite a while. In fact I had been dreaming about fresh crisp iceberg lettuce.
However when faced with the reality in Publx of a whole section offering a huge variety of lettuce , iceberg, romaine reddichio etc I just could not cope, I mean how could I choose?
