~RockHouse Creek 842.2 ~ We love this place - what a gorgeous anchorage. Yesterday afternoon it rained for about 3 hours while Don slept - I read - wanting to make a few calls but didn't want to wake Don so I just kept watch in case the storm got too bad. Around 5 it stopped and though colder it was gorgeous . It's impossible with my point and shoot camera to do this place justice. Our view through the creek and into the inlet is as close as I have been to sitting on the yacht club beach in Wellfleet and looking at Great Island. As the tide goes out several very large sand flats are left. In our view we can see nothing but marsh, sand, water, the waves hitting the sea wall at the ocean's inlet and dolphins - many many dolphins. The light after the rain was gorgeous. Cape Cod soft. As the sun went down there was just a few minutes that the white sand actually had a light green tint. The dolphins were feeding such a frenzy they created a fairly large wake. Just to the left of my photo was a really unattractive boat so I couldn't get a full view zoomed in. This morning we called the Halifax Yacht Club in Daytona ( aka the Taj Mahal ) where we were going to dock for a couple of nights for just $24. a night. No luck - they didn't have room - YEAH! We get to spend the day here. We launched the dingy, packed a picnic and headed for the beach.
A very windy afternoon - we'll head to Daytona tomorrow to anchor in the river to position ourselves for the tricky run to St. Augustine.
