Very short run today from Vero Beach to Ft. Pierce. We actually slowed down more than our usual slow speed to watch the spaceX Falcon 9 take off at Cape Canaveral. My calculations we were 68 miles from the launch site and I didn’t think we would see much. At 10:36 the thing took off and we could see it with our eyes and much better with our binoculars. I took a few pictures, but the rocket was just a dot in the middle of the screen. That thing really moved fast. Duh it was a rocket. And get this the first stage separated and then returned to the launch pad. It’s the 4th time that rocket has been used.

We arrived at the Ft. Pierce Pelican Yacht Club just before lunch and it was a real slip with forward pilings that had to be lassoed. At least there was no bad wind and a little ocean current was swirling around in the basin as the marina is located just inside the actual ocean inlet. Susan tended the stern and spring lines and the dock mistress came aboard and became Annie Oakley lassoing the forward pings. What a team. I have learned it is better for me to stay at the helm to jockey the engine to keep the boat in place while dock lines are being deployed and adjusted.

Wow did I mention the temperature? It was 75º ! Just perfect. No heat or AC needed. Just perfect. The yacht club marina is very nice and we have reciprocity with this club. I might put my collared shirt and kakis on and go in there tomorrow for social hour of dinner.

We walked a bit to the grocery store across from the marina. It is wonderfully stocked and not huge. Susan and I marveled as how many items they had in such a small family owned store. Too bad we had just replenished at Public in Vero.

We are staying here until Monday and have told our dock master that this will be our port of entry coming back from the Bahamas in March.

Today’s picture is the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. I blew the picture up and the spec became a little more visible. I wished we had still been at Cocoa to see the launch. That has to be spectacular.
