Landing in Titusville?

Ended day: mile marker 878

We woke early to get a good start on our trip to Cocoa Beach Village marina. It would be a very long day. We thought we might be able to anchor on the way or get a mooring in Titusville, Fl.

Halifax River Marina in Daytona – sun just rising…

The day was really comfortable temperature. Had a good time and we were looking forward to Cocoa Beach and having a warmer resting place for the next month.

We saw many of these as we headed down the ICW
Beautiful draw bridge
This canal was pretty neat going into the Indian River just north of Titusville – many people lined the banks – fishing.

We arrived at Titusville and talked about grabbing a mooring for the night. We decided to pull into the dock for fuel. A thought kept running through my head – when we visited Cocoa Village marina the boats were dancing like crazy. The dock master told me that the dock we were on took a lot of wake and the boat would move quite a bit. Over the past week that just kept replaying – how was I going to cook? Live? sleep? etc!

So as Stew got fuel I thought I’d just check whether Titusville could give us a slip for the next month – they could!! At first glance they said “no”, but then found us a slip on Dock D- D119!! So I took it! Without knowing anything about the marina – it was going to be our home for the next month.

Stew couldn’t figure out what was going on as the dock hands were instructing him where to drive the boat – hahaha – he was so confused. Thankfully he was in agreement and Titusville Marina was alot cheaper per month than Cocoa Village Marina. And as we would find out – it had much more for us!!
