My air conditioning part arrived in the early afternoon at Beach Marine in Jacksonville and I had it installed and was under way by 1:30. I arrived in St Augustine at 5:30 and picked up my mooring ball on the first try. (always a plus)

I then launched my dinghy and motored into the marina to check in, shower and pick up something for dinner. I accomplished my tasks ashore and motored back out to the boat at about sunset.

The next morning, I decided to store my dinghy and motor back on the boat to facilitate making a better speed. Before doing so, I had to motor back to the marina to drop off my shower key. As I prepared to get into the dinghy, I couldn't believe my eyes. There on the edge of the starboard pontoon of my inflatable dinghy sat my wallet. Not only did it fall onto a "bouncy" surface and stick but it stayed there all night long. *whew!* Somebody up there likes me!

I gratefully retrieved my wallet and returned the shower key. I then stowed the dinghy and motor and cast off. I motor-sailed down the ICW to New Smyrna Beach where I spent night. This morning I continued on, stopping for fuel in Titusville. I then continued on past the Kennedy Space Center and stopped for the night in Cocoa Village.

As it happens a thunderstorm arrived at the marina in the same moment that I did but I managed to get tied up without incident. After the storm passed, I was pleased to see this rainbow.
