Sailing by Cape Canaveral with one day to go!

Finally!...wind we can use! We're sailing by the storied Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center, you can see the Vertical Assembly Building 16nm out to sea! We heard a coast guard call late last night where a sailor reported seeing a multi-colored Parachute flare distress signal from off the cape. He later decided maybe they launched something and he mistook it. I'm sure someone at NASA would be offended to know the general public thinks things they work with can be mistaken for little parachute flares... Laurie and I both saw multiple meteors burn up in the sky last night, I suspect that's what he saw. On other highlights, we caught a four foot Mahi Mahi last evening, which immediately became dinner, and we're all still smiling about the 15 or so dolphins that played around the boat for several minutes yesterday. All is well on NEXUS.
