CT to FL Day 31
Palm Coast, FL to Daytona Beach, FL
We left Palm Coast this morning at 0915... destination for the day was Daytona Beach... very short day.

Stopping to visit dear friends Terri and Wes Malone... it has become a regular stop for us now going north and south... always fun spend some time with them and catch up.

The current gods were not in our favor today... we had current against us all day... running under 6 knots... glad it was a short day.

We arrived to the our destination for the night Daytona Beach Marina & Boatworks in Daytona Beach, FL at 1330. Our location for night N29°12.121',W081°00.627'. We traveled today for 4.25 hours covering 24.9 nautical miles averaging 5.9 knots.

After docking Terri and Wes let us borrow their car to pick up some provisions and for me to run into an urgent care facility... having an issue with one ear and wanted to get it checked out.

CT to FL Day 30
Pine Island Anchorage, FL to Palm Coast, FL
Peaceful night on the hook with a beautiful moon... ended up being a total of 5 boats in the anchorage with us.

We left at 0815 with only a few hours cruising planned to reach Palm Coast, FL where we had plans to visit with dear friends we have made over the years of cruising... only spending one night which is not near enough time to visit everyone we know in Palm Coast.

We did connect briefly with Michael and Jana LaPorte via the VHF radio... they were a few miles behind us aboard their vessel SECOND STAR... great friends we made through MTOA that live in Palm Coast.

We arrived to the our destination for the night Hammock Beach Marina in Palm Coast, FL at 1300. Our location for night N29°34.519',W081°11.329'. We traveled today for 4.75 hours covering 33.0 nautical miles averaging 7.0 knots.

CT to FL Day 29
Fernandina Beach, FL Pine Island Anchorage, FL
We left Fernandina Beach Marina late morning at 1100... Lily and Herman needed a bath and they don't like baths underway... GRIN.

Todays plan was to travel about 6 hours to wherever that took us... we plan to stop and visit friends in Palm Coast, FL that is just over 12 hours south for Fernandina Beach... not enough daylight to do 12 hour days and do not like traveling on the ICW at night so we will split it into too relatively short 6 hour days.

After passing through Jacksonville area... our 6 hour day was going to take us to about 12 miles north of Saint Augustine, FL to an anchorage named Pine Island South in Active Captain. When we arrive there were already 4 bother boats anchored here... and two very familiar ones.

We arrived to the our destination for the night Pine Island Anchorage at 1715. Our location for night N30°03.153',W081°21.755'. We traveled today for 6.25 hours covering 43.0 nautical miles averaging 6.9 knots.

Been two days since we anchored and we find ourselves anchored with the two same boats we were anchored with 2 days ago... BOW-TO_STERN and NORTHERN STAR... first time we anchored with BOW TO STERN was in Carolina Beach, NC... so fun to keep seeing the same boats all headed south. Photo of them anchored behind us and two sailboats behind them.
