Morning Dingy To the Beach
04 September 2008 | presently we are in Daytona Beach, Florida
sunny with building wind
Well it looks like hurricane Hanna is going to pass us a couple of hundred miles to the east so I can think about moving onwards instead of hunkering down here. As a naturalist cruising destination, Daytona is about as sucky as it gets. Nothing beautiful that I could find - only commercialism and not even much of that near the City Marina - probably more shops closer to the Atlantic beach. I don't even like shops, except grocery and ABC stores, but I thought it would be fun to browse. There is, however, a nice park close to the anchorage where I've taken the dogs and where I can let them run around supervised with leashes off. I also dingied by myself to shore to get a few things from West Marine like a Quarantine flag and a Bahamas courtesy flag. I canceled my marina reservation and I'm going to head on to an anchorage within walking distance of the beach later this afternoon. There is another cane coming our way next week, but there's little I can do about that now. The wind turbine is loving this weather and the breeze feels nice. Tomorrow is supposed to be the bad day when the hurricane is directly opposite us at sea so I'll likely be holed up in the cabin for that.
