December 16, 2014  Day 25 South for Winter
Marineland Marina
Palm Coast, FL

Another good cruising day – sunny, calm, warm, only one boat wake (and it knocked our Christmas tree over). We saw many dolphins, white pelicans, and a deer swimming across the ICW! We left Sisters Creek at 0800 to travel over 50 miles to Marineland Marina in Palm Coast.

We reached St. Augustine at 1:00. Bill contacted the Bridge of Lions bridge tender for the current bridge clearance. With our antennas down we were able to pass under without waiting for the next opening.

We arrived at Marineland at 3:10 and went to the pump out dock before going to our slip. We were tired from our long day and spent a quiet evening. We were glad to have leftovers that made dinner much easier. 

We have two more days of traveling over fifty miles and look forward to staying put for a while when we reach Cocoa Village on Thursday. We will go to an anchorage near New Smyrna Beach tomorrow.
