Still Morning On The Way To Titusville
08 September 2008
hot and muggy
Mosquito Lagoon lived up to its name. There were so many mozzies in the cabin by midnight I had to do something. I put up the screens and cleared the cabin of the blood suckers before the dogs and I could sleep the remainder of the evening in peace. The sunset in that remote anchorage prior to the onset of the buggy night was just spectacular but when I awoke at sunrise I just wanted to get the hell out of there. The remaining cruise to Titusville lasted only another 3 hours and we were anchored by late morning. I took the dogs to shore and found a great park by the water to let them run. Then we walked into town and I ate fast food for the first time in months. Last night was spent at anchorage in Titusville. There were no bugs and the cool breeze made for a comfortable evening. Jake and Anne kept alerting to the breathing of manatees that inhabit these waters. At least I know nothing will get close to the boat at night without barking dogs.
