Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas to all.
We left St. Augustine on 12/23 and spent Christmas in Daytona Beach among the tornadoes. We had lots of rain, thunder and lightning with a tornado 4.3 miles from our boat. Ignorance is bliss, they say, and we had no clue how close it had come to us until the next day when we watched the news.
We are now in Titusville (close to Cocoa Beach and home of the 24 hour surf shop Ron Jon's). We are enjoying fair weather and great marine mammels. We have seen our first Manatees. They are enormous and very docile. It is against the law to pet them so ofcourse we are not touching them! Not even Meghan.
It has been great fun to have Meghan and Dana with us. Having four people on deck for docking is great. How will we get along without them???? Ha Ha.
Steve and I are getting used to life onboard and look forward to our next port of call, wherever that may be? We have gotten used to not making too many plans because you never know what Mother Nature has planned.
Happy New Year from the Captain and The First Mate
