Peaceful Day in the ICW

08 March 2012 | Saint Augustine, Florida
We were up early this morning to take advantage of the forecast of calm winds until early afternoon. Left Halifax Harbor at 6:30 am and motored through four drawbridges on our way to Saint Augustine. The winds were pleasant until about noon when they started to increase. At 1:30, when we were attached to a mooring ball in Saint Augustine, the winds were blowing about 12 to 18 mph. The temperature is in the mid 70’s but the wind makes it feel cooler. The winds are supposed to be light overnight so we expect a pleasant overnight stay. Tomorrow we have about 32 miles to go to Palm Cove Marina in Jacksonville Beach which is our final stop on this leg of our trip. The Captain
Today was a varied, interesting vision of the ICW. We went past beaches, ordinary neighborhoods, upscale houses with elaborate docks, public parks, walking paths, and Florida wilderness. The wilderness was a thick mixture of low palms and mangrove trees interwoven with flat marsh. On the edges were white sandy beaches accessible by canoe or kayak. Our maps showed depths of 0 to 1 ft. in this area. As we made our way toward St. Augustine, the Matanzas River wove through lightly inhabited islands and wildlife sanctuary. It was an ever-changing beautiful ride. The Admiral
