Gee, nothing like suffering from writer's block for a while....WHEW!!!  So, I am going to do better.  I promise to post more often, if only to myself...***snort***


Am contemplating moving out to the Owl in July permanently.  I am now living on her on the weekends, and it has been most challenging but do-able.  I enjoy being able to live aboard even more now that I have a little refrigerator.  It is amazing how that can really make food more interesting! 


Wow!  Hurricane season is coming soon. 


I will post some links to interesting sailing and marina sites as I find them. I am going to post just a couple here for grins. 


Here is the link for Marineland Marina  I have read a lot of good things about them on the Amazon East Florida Boating, Sailing and Cruising News blog for kindle (99 cents a month for TONS of info).  If you have a kindle, well worth the price.  Here's the link:  The sponsor is Salty Southeast Cruiser's Net; they offer news for Western Florida and the Florida Keys in blog form also. 


Sailed a bit weekend before last.  It was such a nice, steady 4.4 knot pleasant and nice.  About 2 weeks ago Ben, JP and I went out and the wind was blowing gustily and boy, we fought it hard.  A very great sailing day for hard core sailors, but not the fairweathers! 


Hopefully new pics soon.  My camera is broken, so I have been taking pics with my there are a few!  Check them out.  Taken near Lee Wenner Park:  (cut and pasted from the Brevard County website)

Lee Wenner Park

300 Riveredge Boulevard, Cocoa
FROM US Hwy 1 at SR-520, go east .5 miles and turn right onto Riveredge Drive. The park is on the Indian River at the southwest side of the Hubert Humphrey bridge.

Boat ramps open 24 hours a day.

This 11.55-acre community river park is a popular boat launch site. Along with the boat ramps, several other amenities make it an attractive recreational area. A pavilion, grills, picnic tables, restrooms, playground, and benches are connected by a paved walkway, while a boardwalk adjacent to the boat docks extends to Cocoa Riverfront Park and Historic Cocoa Village. The pier and a t-shaped dock are ideal for leisurely fishing. The Coast Guard Auxiliary Building features Boating Safety Classes and has a meeting room available for rental.

Large Pavilion (seats 160), Coast Guard Auxiliary Building
ADA ACCESSIBLE: Parking, Restrooms, Coast Guard Auxiliary Building, Pavilion, Playground, Paved Walkway, Fishing Pier, Docks
• Boat Ramps (4-lane)
• Coast Guard Auxiliary Building
• Fishing (500' pier, 10x153/5x54 t-shaped pier)

DOS & DON’TS: 1) No diving from docks or pier. 2) Restrooms close at dark except for scheduled use. 3) Service animals only or dogs on short leash and only when leading dog between vehicle and boat. 4) Alcoholic beverages in designated areas only. 5) Other restrictions as posted.  


From my own experience, very easy to dock.  I do not say this lightly!  Lots of restaurants nearby. 

Until next time, happy sailing and stay safe and dry.

How do we or do we not know each other? Your blog about writer's block grabbed my interest. I, too, love to write and sometimes words just rattle off. Indeed, the articles I get the most good feedback are the ones that took little editing. Others drag on and on. Seven seas is offering a writing course and though I am tempted to join their 4 week (hourly) seminar, my time is so limited I am afraid to sign up and not follow through. Imagine, they want you to write,,,,,,that is supposed to be funny. Anyway, knowing you live on Merritt Island I must invite you to join me at Port Canaveral Yacht Club where SPRAY is currently lodging. Wednesday night they have a dinner or you can join me in the cockpit for some r & r. Same for Thursday night, and of course some sailing Friday evening through Sunday morning,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the whole time or parts thereof. My regular e-mail is:

Love to have you along.
