1:58 PM Docked stern in port side to Slip 31

Early start 1 minute before sunrise with chilly mist. Three boats all pull out of the marina at the same time with Liquid Therapy in the lead. I really don’t like being the leader of anything. But, having other boats follow the path I have picked might have them wondering about my navigation skills. Well most of the time there is no other boat around and I shave off corners instead of following the center of the channel. It saves time and fuel. But, it’s not exactly pretty. When I meet another boat, I move over to the proper side of the channel. Or, when a boat comes up behind me I get all proper too. So, now I have two other boats following my path. Most of the time whoever is following me is catching up with me because we are a slow boat. For at least for an hour or so they are content to stay behind me while I pick our way though the haze and mist. Finally I slow down for a no wake area. The other two boats pass me. And then I’m free to pilot my boat anyway I please.
It’s supposed to get really nasty in the New Symrna, FL area. Calling for thunderstorms and high winds. That was initially supposed to start late this afternoon. That is why we started out just before the sun came up. And, then the forecast changed to 7PM for severe weather. Anyhow, we are tied up. I met the guy that was in the boat next to us at Marineland. He was supposed to anchor out at Daytona. He didn’t like the idea of anchoring in thunderstorms either and has joined us here at the marina.

We are staying at New Smyrna two days There is a farmers market tomorrow morning. We love farmers markets. I hope it is not canceled. At least it's not snowing.
Today’s picture is the view from our boat at Marineland.
