Dusk Beach Run

nice
By the way, "Matanzas" means slaughter. One happened here when some French tried to come through the inlet. Hopefully nothing like that tonight. However, in a few days hurricane Hanna will be coming north along the Florida coast. It is supposed to hit land just north of here (ironically) but the reports today predicted very heavy winds Thursday and Friday for my area. I've decided that I'm not coming off the water - not just yet at least. Instead I reserved space at a nice marina in Daytona Beach for the duration of the storm. We will ride it out at the dock in air conditioned comfort. I see lightening in the distance tonight - hopefully it won't come our way. I only have a medium amount of chain out as this is rather narrow channel and we are closer to shore than I would like. The change of tide takes us pretty close to shore near the fort and another one is coming in the middle of the night. I think I'm ok, but it will be low tide on that change and when I swing the other direction it is possible that I will ground - I think I'll be ok. On that note, I kind of hit an ICW marker while down below for a minute making a sandwich. It was on the way from St. Augustine to here and I checked before left the helm but I must not have seen this one after so many hundreds of the blessed things. Amazingly, the Catalina 36 pretty much just bounced off without problem. I'm certain one of the two signs on the marker fell into the water...so I'm sorry about that and will be even more careful when letting the boat steer itself in inland waters.
