Making a trip through the ICW

Hi everyone,

I am making a voyage from Clear Lake TX to Virginia via the ICW along the gulf coast and then up the East coast to Virginia. I will be by myself on a 30 ft Dufour. My Plan is to Motor most of the way because I don't want to spend several hours jumping outside to sail a few hours then jump back inside to anchor for the night. Any information on good spots to tie up for the night along this route will be very helpful. Additionally I will be trying to leave the Tx. area around the 20th of April. Is this a good time of year to make this trip. I have just spent the last few months down in St. Marten and I am basically just try to get to the east the safest and fastest way without having to ship the boat again.
