After a very healthy breakfast of donuts and croissants provided by the Elnitskys’ we set sail on Sunday morning. As you can see we intend to continue along the theme of healthy eating.
We decided go to St Augustine via the ICW as the weather was inclement and we would have been beating all the way. We made splendid time .. for two hours, until we arrived at the Sea Breeze bridge in Daytona. Laura 2 need a clearance of 64FT and we were at the end low tide but needed that final 2 inches to clear the bridge and the numbers weren’t clear. Finally we decided to risk it. Hold our breath and off we went.
It’s alway interesting going up the ICW and Ive posted many pictures of that. We sailed out to sea and the boys called their respective wives to tell them that everything was fine. True, for the first couple of hours and soon sure enough a squall was following us. Life jackets were donned and tethers attached. Mat changed course and we managed to avoid it but the sea was horribly lumpy after that and not so pleasant. I cooked hot dogs, beans and bread and they just had to lump it. Thank god for Laura’s Brownies.
As usual at sea we had a beautiful sunset and Pat and John bonded !! Now we are anchored in Charleston.
