We traveled 76 miles in 8.5 hours arriving in Fort Matanzas, FL
While weighing anchorage this morning we cut the tow line to the dingy and it was drifting into the mooring field filled with sailboats. Captain Bob maneuvered the Mermaid while we captured the dingy with the boat hook. Retrieved and reconnected the tow line and we were off. (Sorry no pictures we were all busy.)
First set of bridges for the day.
Beautiful house and the other picture with the white dots are actually white pelicans that have migrated south for the winter.
It appears that it is necessary to have a REALLY long dock to get to the water.

Ran into a little rainy weather this afternoon. This was really a relief due to the fact that the early afternoon was a hot blazing sun.
