Autumn Borne Cruising

CSY-44 Antigua - Hull 001

St. Augustine to Daytona Beach FL

28 November 2017 | daytona Beach FL
dean -- warm and muggy -- very Windy
Tuesday - 28 NOV 2017 - St. Augustine to Daytona Beach FL
We waited until sunrise this morning to gather in the mooring lines and take off South. Nice easy morning, and day. No one around with which to coordinate; Second Wind stayed at Fernandina for a few days; Avalon is still up in Dataw SC; Dalmatian was down in Fort Pierce (after night run in the ocean), and waiting for low tide so they could get under the bridges going North to Vero Beach.
SO...AB is essentially traveling alone... again. Anyway... nice day through Matanzas Inlet shallows; and the remainder of the ICW south to Daytona Beach.
We're now anchored across from a VERY damaged Caribbean Jacks restaurant. The normal place looks dark; and a new place is active behind (away from the water's edge).
N29 13.762 W 081 01.268 after 44.6 nm of travel today.
We figure tomorrow we'll be outside of Titusville; Then two travel days later we'll be down at Vero Beach.
We passed a single hander on the ICW today... then about an hour after we anchored, he came under the SeaBreeze Bridge, and dropped his anchor right upstream of AB.... (Rope rode too!!!! )
I went out to the bow, and asked him "what time he planned to leave in the AM.... As HE's sitting Right ON TOP of our anchor"? He was shocked that I'd ask him that. I said "WELL, If your still there...We'll be Really CLOSE when we take in our chain in the AM; just be prepared!!"
He's still there... Could be an interesting night TOO.... Very windy.... And he's on a rope rode, moving quite a bit more than AB.
OH well....
We have found CBS TV here... (touch wood).... At least for a while.
SO...........maybe NCIS ?
More later.
