Day 3 on the ICW

Today was not the greatest travel day, we fought the current and 15-20 knot head winds all day, and just when the current came into our favor we had the opposing wind of 20 knot, oh well, annoying but life is still good. The scenery was awesome though. Our moving time was 8.54 hour at an avg speed of 3.7 knots and we traveled 33.3 nautical miles.

We scraped our first anchorage pick because there was no room, lots of crab pots and no wind protection, so we motored on for another hour to find the one we are in that is not a recommended anchorage because there is lots of commercial traffic, and there is big shrimp boats and 150 foot booze cruise boats coming by quickly. We are anchored in St. Augustine River N 32 03.643 W 080 59.002.

All is well, Cheers Kim and Mike.
