Matanzas Inlet to Rockhouse Creek

As we got on our way this morning we heard Jacksonville Coast Guard give notice that the St. Augustine Bridge of Lions was closed until further notice, due to mechanical problems.  By the grace of God that bridge is in our rear view mirror!

Today the winds were boisterous from the south and now from the southwest.  Based upon the noise in the rigging and how we are pulling on the anchor, I would guess they are in the 20’s.  We had to sneak out some jib, sheeted on the inside, to help us against the wind.  We expect the winds to swing to the north during the night.  Two peaceful nights out of three is not bad.  We are dug in and well scoped and now I am going to try to take care of the halyard noise.  There are two other boats in the anchorage, Pay Dirt, a DeFever, and a sloop, name unknown until the wind turns.  More may come.   I thought leaving this late we would be mostly by ourselves.  We are not in the thick of the crowd, but we have had company at every anchorage.

Crew and boat are fine and we are already looking for a weather window to get across the Gulf Stream.

Love to all,
