December 18, 2014  Day 27 South for Winter
Cocoa Village Marina
Cocoa, FL

We were so fortunate to have another good cruising day of just over 50 miles. It was sunny, calm, and warm. We departed our anchorage at 7:15 and only saw a few boats all day, but we did see many dolphins and pelicans. 

All the bridges had sufficient clearance today so we did not have to wait for any openings. We traveled through the Mosquito Lagoon, the Haulover Canal, and the Indian River, and had the current with us most of the time.  We also passed by Fort Pierce. We could see the Cape Kennedy Space Hangar in the distance. We look forward to watching a rocket launch tomorrow afternoon.

We arrived at Cocoa Village Marina around 2:00 and were greeted by the friendly staff. This was a big milestone for us as we will spend over two weeks here.
