April 17, 2015  Day 147 South for Winter
Halifax Harbor Marina
Daytona Beach, FL     

We have had a very busy week here in Daytona Beach. The MTOA Southern Rendezvous officially began Tuesday but unofficially started with a social gathering Monday night with appetizers.  We attended seminars, meetings, meals, and social activities. There were over 200 in attendance and we were happy to have been part of it. In spite of rain and storms almost every day, we had a great time and reunited with many old friends and made new ones.

One of the off-site activities was a baseball game with the Daytona Tortugas (farm team for the Cincinnati Reds) and the Charlotte Stone Crabs. We had a catered barbecue dinner at the stadium before the game. However, the weather did not cooperate and the game was eventually called off due to thunderstorms. We still enjoyed being with friends.

Joyce spent Friday afternoon browsing through boutiques in New Smyrna Beach with Ann, Margi, and Janet – what a great way to spend our last day here.

We will depart tomorrow and go to an anchorage either near Palm Coast or St. Augustine.
