We last left you at Vero Beach. We left there on Mar. 26th a Sunday. It was a good trip up except for three cruisers who waked everyone they went by. We had stuff flying all over the place after the first one and the other two say how the wake rocked us but still didn't slow down. We heard people complaining for hours when they passed boats ahead of us. We anchored by a bridge Sunday night and on Monday made it to Titusville and stayed there a couple of nights.
We left Wednesday and had current against us most of the way to Daytona. On Thursday left Daytona and made it to St Augustine. Also had current against us until last hour. Both days were about 10 hr trips.
We plan to stay here a week and meet up with family (Brian and Sue).
In St Augustine we spent time walking around the town, people watching from the boat, took a bus to the store, got some laundry done. Had problems with the wifi, kept kicking us off. On Monday spent the day with Brian and Sue, but got them home before the storm hit. Lots of wind, rain, thunder and lightening. Most of Tuesday wet and windy, cleared some in the afternoon. Looks like a few days of wind and thunderstorms.
Today it was nice this morning with good winds for the day, but storms coming in tonight. We decide to head out and maybe make it to Jacksonville. However, again with the currents, a slow trip up. Some motor sailing. At Palm Cove Marina we decide to come in for the night. We are on a dock and the marina is about 7 miles south of the Saint John river. A very well protected marina. Tomorrow or Friday depending on the weather we will head out and up the river. We have made arrangements to come out of the water on the 11th and then into storage the 18th.
