Cocoa Beach MM 904
11/20/2011, Cocoa Beach

Tough day today. It was 64 NM with most of it in the morning with SE wind at 15 kts. Guess what direction we were traveling in? The afternoon turned out better at least we headed more south and was able to take the headsail out. By then it was 16 - 18 kts and a romping good sail. Anchored on the east side of the Indian River near marker 88, out of the wind. Miller time. alan

Daytona MM 830
11/19/2011, Daytona Beach Fla.

In Daytona Beach, anchored south of the Memorial Bridge. Exceptional day today, didn't bounce off the bottom once. Probably due more to the deeper ICW than my attention or inattention to the helm.

St. Augustine MM 778
11/18/2011, St. Augustine, Fla

Another long day on the ICW. It was low tide when I left Fernandina Beach and there was a lot of unreported shoaling. Needless to say I felt like I had my heart in my throat most of the morning until I got out of the Ameila River. The rest of the day was just long, 62 miles worth.
Arriving in St Augustine around 4 PM it was difficult to find a spot to anchor. It seems that all the anchorages are filled up with mooring balls and you can't anchor within the confines of the mooring field.
When the wind abates this morning, right now it's blowing in the mid 20's, I'll head into town and take a look around.
A lot of history here.

Looks like big seas on the outside all weekend.

Well, you made it farther down the ICW than Yumsuch - they are in Oriental with half a mast. Can't let your gaurd down at any time!

Mooring balls. They will kill cruising.
Surprised Sodus Bay isn't filled with the damn things. Easy money.
