Day 2 ICW

Day 2: 
70 Miles
Melborne-New Symrna 

Good day all! 
Day 2 started out with a slight complication! During our anchorage last night we ran down our batteries way low somehow, we didn't run anything excessively, so we immediately started our engine to charge the converter and we hoisted anchor around 6:30 and we were off! 
Today was the day of bridges!! We went under/through 4 bridges. Luckily we didn't have to wait any longer than 20 minutes for any of them. There was however some traffic at each of them that we had to maneuver around because of some currents and wind. But nothing too bad. The operator at the Titusville Bridge remembered Happy Feet and wished us safe travels! 

As we chugged our way north toward Cape Canaveral we started hearing important NASA related things over the radio. They are preparing for a launch on Monday morning! As we passed we could see the launch site and how there were setting up the launch pad and we could see the huge NASA symbol on the building. No rocket though. 

So now, I'm sitting on the back porch of "Happy Feet" watching the sunset and some small vessels make their way home for the night. Tomorrow we tackle the big blue! We are going to shoot the Ponce de Leon Inlet here in New Symrna and travel off shore and come back in and tie up in St. Augustine so we can have a look about town and then its northbound for "Happy Feet"!
