We feel fortunate to be traveling slow and seeing a slice of waterfront life, historic small towns relying on boating and tourism. WE can't help but notice and enjoy nature at this speed, all the birds, the dophins , the protected manatees. We've seen many bald eagles and endless osprey and pelicans. We love watching the shore brids flit on the beach pecking for food. We are on foot most of the time and don't get out of town to see Walmart and the rest of the big box sotres. We can just for a while pretend the world is even on it's axis. We meet new people daily and see boaters helping boaters. There is so much good about our country and the lives we have been fortunate enough to grow up in - so for that - for friends and family we give thanks.
We were in Daytona last night anchored on the side of the Halifax River in front of the sewage treatment plant that gave us a great sunset ! It looked liked the colors you see on a tacky black velvet painting in a Florida tourist shop. We had a nice walk in Daytona to West marine for a few supplies and found some clothes on the sale rack. Onward to Rockhouse Creek this morning- just a 2 hr boat ride - wishing to be in a beautiful spot for the holiday- and it is. We dingied to the beach and had a nice walk at the ocean - this is the 3rd time we've anchored here - this time 7 of us have squeezed in here. Oh - gotta go - our neighbor from RI has invited us over - so cheers and Happy Thanksgiving with love - Marg -Don & Tiller
