I love this new chartplotter! Plus, with Garmin’s Bluechart Mobile on my iPad (Garmin charts integrated with the Active Captain cruising guide), navigation and determining where you want to go is a piece of cake. I’ve still got paper charts (thank you Rick), and that old hand-bearing compass, but who wants to go there.
Today’s sail was non-Florida like. Overcast, the high was only 80-degrees, and this evening it’s raining. At least we had a light Easterly breezes today, and had the Genoa up almost the whole time.
We are anchored off Melbourne Beach’s town dock and park. Annie and I took a stroll over to A1A. It is a quaint little historic district. A sign claims that this is Florida’s oldest beach side community. You can imagine what it was like coming in to Melbourne Beach back in the 1880’s.
Chef PJ came up with a fantastic salad with braised chicken breast and lots of other goodies for our dinner. Does it get much better than this?
