Traveled a lot today 10 hours and 86 miles arriving in Titusville, FL at 5pm.
Captain Bob got up and weighed anchor early and got under way at 7:19am to get an early start. Because we were planning on a long trip today. After breakfast we relieved Captain Bob of the helm to be greeted with these early morning photos.
Looks like were headed for a pot of gold.
Little bit over cast today just kept dodging all the really bad showers, but actually the showers dodged us because our route was pretty confined. Where have all the boats gone?
Dolphins at play while passing Palm Coast.
ICW shore line on Smith Creek.
Knox Bridge on the Halifax River opened so we could pass and a Bald eagle keeping watch.
Being passed along the Halifax River.
Tug moored to private home on the Halifax River.
Bridges and scenes going through the Dayton Beach area.
Ocean inlet and then the Ponce de Leon lighthouse.
New Smyrna Beach Marina. It looks like these three pontoon boats are headed out to party.
A whole bunch of Pelican on an island. Head boat “Past Time Princess”.
Man and his dog north bound on Indian River.
Sea turtle surfaced as we passed by.
Picture looking north and south on the Mosquito Lagoon. The west bank is marsh and the east is separate from the Atlantic by a narrow barrier island. Other than the channel the lagoon is only 4-5 feet deep and it took us an hour and twenty minutes to transit it.
The Haulover Canal and bridge leading into the Indian River to Titusville.
We moored at the Titusville Municipal Marina for the evening. After fueling and taking on water Captain Bob departed on a grocery run. Jerry & I met a number of local and transit boaters in the marina lounge over cold drinks. We then used the marina facilities to take Hollywood showers and catch up on our laundry.
Upon returning to the Mermaid Captain Bob was watching Congress question Hillary Clinton on TV while fixing a delicious late evening shrimp dinner.
