April 12-14, 2016  Days 8-10  Spring 2016
Daytona Marina & Boat Works
Daytona Beach, FL

The best of plans… When we left our anchorage at Cocoa on Tuesday morning, we intended to travel to New Smyrna. However, our port engine was running rough and we decided to go all the way to Daytona Beach to have it looked at.  We arrived at 4:30, glad to be docked after a day of uncertainty!

We had a diesel mechanic diagnose the problem: an injector, which Bill suspected as well.  We will get a new injector installed tomorrow, and are very happy it was nothing more serious.  Now we just have to wait for a weather window to continue our trip north. Winds, rain, and thunderstorms are in the forecast through Saturday. So we will stay put!

We took a nice walk today and went over to Halifax Harbor Marina. We were there last spring for an MTOA rendezvous.  Our friends, Ann and Ken on M/V Charis had just arrived and we visited with them for a while on their boat.
Loved the relaxed golden retriever out sailing today

An unexpected guest!
Apparently this cat visits everyone's boat!
We got back to our own boat before the rain began. We had dinner on board and just relaxed for the evening.
