CT to FL Day 34
Vero Beach, FL to Port Mayaca, FL
We pulled the anchor this morning and was underway at 0700 just before sunrise.

A lot of boat traffic today small and large going both north and south... all the crazy people it seemed... oh well... no one ran into us at least but thought a few times they were... GRIN

Bright an sunny all day with a 10 to 15 knot wind... a bit cooler than it had been the last few days... it was 64° when we left the anchorage and I the high temp was 72°... overall a very nice day.

We lucked out with the railroad bridge adjacent the Roosevelt Bridge... two minutes after going under the Roosevelt Bridge the railroad bridge closed... not so lucky at the St. Lucie Lock... arrived just as the lock was starting an east bound lockage so we waited about 35 minutes before being able to lock through west bound. This was enough of a delay to cause us to be able to make the last lockage at Port Mayaca at 1630... SIGH

We arrived to the our destination for the night at the Port Mayaca Lock at 1800 and tied SAILS between two dolphins at the lock arrival point. First time doing this and it proved to be quite challenging... we were secure between the dolphins at 1830. Our location for the night N26°59.171',W080°36.863'. We traveled today for 11.0 hours covering 64.8 nautical miles averaging 5.9 knots.

CT to FL Day 33
Titusville, FL to Vero Beach, FL
We left the anchorage at 0730... bit of a hard time getting the anchor up... it was really set... when it came up it looked like a huge clump of clay... could not even recognize it as anchor... first time this has ever happened... guess I worried about dragging anchor all night for nothing.

Nothing out of the ordinary happened today... got waked by all the sport fish boats and larger motor yachts... sailboats ignored by VHF hails to ask f=about passing them... same thing as usual...weather was good and quite warm... getting to over 80°... ran with all the doors and windows open... the dogs did not know what was going on... I think it was the first time they have ever experienced that... typically we have been cruising in colder weather and everything was shut up tight.



We arrived to the our destination for the night in Vero Beach at 1700 and anchored just south of the Vero Beach Municipal Marina just off the ICW. Our location for the night N27°38.913',W080°22.278'. We traveled today for 9.5 hours covering 64.7 nautical miles averaging 6.8 knots.

CT to FL Day 32
Daytona Beach, FL to Titusville, FL
We took the morning off and went out for breakfast with Terri and Wes... after breakfast stopped at a local Farmer's Market and Susan was able to get some nice fresh produce.

Got back to SAILS around 1100 and prepared to leave.. I topped off the water tanks as not sure when would be at a marina again over the next few days... our plans were to anchor the next few days. We left the dock as 1200.

We arrived to the our destination for the night Titusville 1800 and anchored just NE of the Titusville Mooring Field. Our location for the night N28°38.054',W080°48.554'. We traveled today for 6.0 hours covering 40.7 nautical miles averaging 6.0 knots.
