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).
