New Smyrna Beach to Palm Coast
Florida to Rhode Island - Day 7
We left Rockhouse Creek in New Smyrna Beach at 0930. We had an incoming tide and this gave us a speed boost for most of the day. WE were doing 7.5 to 8.5 knots most of the day... it was great!
We had a few bridges today but all were on demand and we did not have to wait at any of them... :)
We passed Ed and Linda of Lady Brookhaven who were anchored in Daytona... we had just met them at the MTOA rendezvous in Stuart.
We arrived to Pam Coast at 1430 hours and docked and Jim and Peg's dock just east of Phil and Sarah Lowes house... N29º 35.147', W081º 12.426'... Great dock! Palm Coast is a great place to stop for the night... the MTOA members in the area always have a dock available for you... :)
Tonight we will be attending a fish fry at Phil and Sarah's home... sounds like there will be quite a few other MTOA members there... should be a lot of fun!
Day's Stats: We traveled for 5 hours and covered 36 nautical miles averaging 7.2 knots.

Melborne to Cocoa
Florida to Rhode Island - Day 5
We departed from Melborne at 0930 and planned to stop at Cocoa for lunch... awesome pizza place there... Ryan's Village Pizza... just can't pass by without stopping for a pizza or two... :)
We arrived at Cocoa and docked at the city docks at 1215... had lunch at Ryan's Village Pizza... just a short walk from the docks... We were joined at lunch by Roger and Robin and their guest cruisers Bill and Kathy from SeaRobin and also Jay and Pam from Floating Dock... both had gone to the Cocoa Village Marina... The pizza was great as always and we ate way too much... :)
We did not finish with lunch until 1430 and our planned destination for the day was New Smyrna Beach... which was still approximately 60nm north of us... we decided it was too far to continue on today and opted to spend the night in Cocoa and get an early start to New Smyrna Beach in the morning... and an afternoon nap sounded really good... LOL
Stats for today:
We traveled 2 hours and 45 minutes and covered 18 nautical miles (21 miles) averaging 6.5 knots (7.5 mph).
