We had a much better day today. No more mishaps. We got away around 9:00am and motored the ICW from Daytona to St. Augustine. The traffic in the ICW around Daytona on the 4th of July was a little much, but the wakes quieted down once we got further along into a more rural area. The scenery in this part of the ICW is a lot different than Fort Lauderdale! Much more untouched nature and much humbler houses.
We had a long day of travel, but it went quite well, so the time flew by. We arrived at the anchorage in St. Augustine around 6:00pm. We got anchored, Andy took the dogs ashore for a walk, we got Henry off to bed, and then settled into the cockpit to watch the Independence Day fireworks. There were plenty of private parties along the shoreline giving us a show before the main event. People lined the shoreline and the bridge by the hundreds.
The fireworks display was phenomenal! They really know how to put on a show! We were amazed that Henry slept through that much noise. We are hoping to see a bit of "historic St. Augustine" before we move on again.
