7:52 AM Underway
2:45 PM Docked bow in port side to Slip 24

Nice chilly ride today. 38º as we left New Smyrna with a north wind 10-15 MPH at our stern as we headed for some very long stretches of water with little or no turns. We saw lots more destruction of docks and homes as we headed south out of New Smyrna into the Mosquito Lagoon for 10 miles before taking a cut that dropped us into the Indian River. The rest of the trip was on the Indian River and will be so for many more days as the Indian River runs from above Titusville all the way to St. Lucie inlet about 95 miles to the south. The trip was pretty easy with the wind at our backs and the long stretches of steady headings. We did see our first manatee today in the cut going between Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River. The manatee was right in front of the boat and I was doing all I could do to keep from hitting him at dead idle. There are many manatees hit by boats and I didn’t want to injure one. I don’t think they are the smartest sea animal since they don’t get out of the way. Dolphins on the other hand are very smart and often play in our bow wake. Dolphins will also turn on their side and look up at you. Most of the time I can’t see them playing under the bow. But I hear them blowing air out and sometimes smell their breath. And, every once in a while they will actually jump into the air like you are at a show. Of course as soon as you pick up the camera they disappear.. Anyhow, I didn’t hit the manatee.

We pulled in Cocoa Village Marina just before 3 and got tied up. This place is nice, Their cable TV even works. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve hooked up cable at marinas that say they have cable, and it doesn’t work. We really don’t care that much for TV. The little we watch is mostly with our Apple TV or locations that we get some antenna TV. But hey, since it’s working at the dock, I’m hooking it up.
We are planning on staying at Cocoa for two days. Although I’ve been informed there is a space launch on Tuesday. The guy says this marina is the perfect spot to watch rocket launches. So, we might stay 3 days instead of two.

You meet people that are from Virginia, or had their boat in Deltaville very often. But, Susan just met a lady in the marina bathroom that is from Old Church, Our neighborhood. How crazy is that?

Today’s picture is a terrible sight. A barge loaded with damaged boats about to meet the boat graveyard in Jacksonville. Sad.
