November 14, 2011.
We left Saint Augustine at first light, went through the bridge and stopped at the city marinas fuel dock. Dumped some garbage and filled both the water and fuel tanks and then once again turned south. We had a tidal push for several hours and dropped the hook in Daytona Beach by 1330.
This morning we had the hook up before first light and started making our way south. We wanted to knock out an 82 mile day so we had to start especially early. We had the tide with us for the first 45 minutes and then it ran against us for most of the remainder of the day. What the tide giveth the tide taketh away. We nailed the timing of all the bridges and dropped the hook just 6 minutes after sunset near Melborne.
The Eau Gallie public library is right on the waterfront so we always drop the hook right outside the reference section to grab some of their free wifi. Another plus is that the Packet Inns live close by and dropped in with pizza.
Vero Beach tomorrow.....
