February 26, 2013 Day 291
New Smyrna Beach Municipal Marina
New Smyrna Beach, FL
Total miles to date: 4908.6

At 7:30 this morning we pulled up our anchor and made the decision to go to a marina.  With thunderstorms forecast and without a functioning generator, we could not easily stay at anchor.  Fortunately, New Smyrna Beach was only 17 miles away and they had room for us.

We arrived here at 10:00 just as the rain began and in a 17 mph wind.  It rained off and on all day and the storms did not develop, but we are still happy to be tied to a dock!

Bill could not work on the generator until the engine room was cool enough, so the maintenance will continue tomorrow as we stay here another day.  Joyce worked on laundry, prepared dinner, and made reservations for our three day weekend in St. Augustine.
