Marineland to Vero Beach

27 November 2017 | Merritt Island Cocoa Beach, Florida
Cool, Light winds, NE 6 MPH
On Saturday morning at 8:15, we left the Marineland Marina and headed to New Smyrna Beach. It was a calm, sunny, but cool morning. Due to our deep draft, we had to wait for a rising tide to get out of the marina. We were able to get out and onto the ICW with no issues. At around 4:00 PM we set anchor in 13 feet of water across from the New Smyrna Beach Yacht Club. The next day we pulled up the anchor at 6:50 and headed to Cocoa Beach. During our travels, we found that the further south we got, the more damage we see from Hurricane Irma.

Our friends Gayle and Alan, from up North, are in Edgewater for the winter. To our surprise they were able to take a video from their dock of us passing by on the ICW. Later during the day, when we went through the Haulover Canal Bridge we saw a manatee swimming by. This is an interesting stretch of the ICW. At this location it is considered a canal with a width of approximately 100' with people fishing on both sides of the banks and various small boats were anchored near the shore lines. When we arrived at Cocoa Beach, we anchored on the NE side of the Merritt Island Bridge. We took the dinghy to shore where we met Gayle and Alan. We spent a lovely afternoon and evening shopping in the quaint shops of the Cocoa Beach Village followed by dinner at Fishlips.

This morning we pulled anchor at 6:35 and are on our way to Vero Beach where we plan to spend at least a week with our cruising friends. While there, we are hoping to get the opportunity to play some pickle ball.
