In St. Augustine for the week. Nice stop although it could be a bit warmer. Rain cleared late and the sun came out so we dropped the dinghy from the roof and took it for a spin. It started right up after sitting for 5 months. I learned my lesson when it comes to a four-stroke outboard - follow the maintenance list and drain the fuel from the bowl before storing. Working this week to pay the bills so we aren't traveling, but there is a nice transient community here with a get-together every morning on VHF 72.

Nice..we left there 2 days ago..a quick stop in S Daytona...now at the City dock in New Smyrna Beach....first time and really like it. $1.25/foot and nice. Lot's around without being touristy like St Auggie.

Leave for Titusville on Friday for a week there and hopefully the Atlas launch on the 23rd.

Obligatory boat pic from St Augustine. What a great town... if only it was a tad warmer.

Not a rental but pretty cool except for managing the 21 foot draft!

20 degrees warmer and we'd move here. Great town. Heading south tomorrow.

Stay till August

Try New Smyrna....similar but smaller and less touristy...we liked it and the muni marina is more reasonable.

We got to see a launch when we stopped at Titusville last May. We hiked up to the top of the Max Brewer bridge for the best view.

A fella at the marina said that in the "old days", when they launched the Saturn V rockets, stuff would fall off the shelves and windows would break. He said you could feel the rumble in your chest.

Jan 23rd is a night launch (9pm). Should be awesome. KJ

Looks like we will be in Titusville for the launch this week. Never saw one before.

Good progress indeed. We've been traveling the same way, 7 knots for 2 days then hang out for a few. A pleasant journey.

I don't know...I always kinda assumed there was 3 speeds.... Delivery, Travelin' and Cruisin'...kinda thought we were Cruisin' (and having a pleasant journey like you think)....

somewhere's between Travelin' and Delivery is "making good time".....
