See, I told ya!
05 October 2012 | Cocoa Beach, FL
See, I told you I was dodging storms! Actually, this one wasn't too bad.... just a little squall. In the words of my hero, Captain Ron "They come on ya fast and then they leave ya fast..." This one kind of stalked me for a bit and then struck a glancing blow. No damage, just a little wind and rain.
Overall though, it was a good day. I had enough wind to motorsail the entire day and made it past Cape Canaveralon into Cocoa Village Marina. I decided to stay here since tonight is another installment of "Tropstock Friday's" at Mambo's on the Beach at the International Palms Resort. Since I played the season opener a few weeks back, I figured I should support the brand! Tonight's performer is Scott Kirby. I really admire his songwriting. Besides, how much of an excuse do you need to hang out with cool people like the Space Coast Parrot Heads?
The plan tomorrow is to push on to Vero Beach for a couple of days. Hopfully, by then the unsettled weather will move on. At least I hope so because I'm planning to run off-shore to the Keys soon after that. (Wilson gets nervous when we go off-shore in bad weather.)
Anyway, here's a picture of today's squall, as seen from my foredeck.
