"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

May 24 - Indian River Shores, FL

Day 79 - Back to Nature
Indian River - Anchorage

As we left Palm Beach we went by several mega yacht marinas...made our neighbors last night look small. We could see their crews busy polishing and cleaning. We joked we had a crew too, chef, captain, deck hands, cabin boy (girl)...they just happen to be the owners too! Who needs all that company? We saw beautiful homes today too, but as we traveled they began to get back to a realistic size. There were still huge homes but not lined up one after the other. We began to see areas that were undeveloped...back to nature. We also started seeing more birds and dolphins. We even saw a manta ray jump out of the water and we think we saw a manatee. We anchored off the ICW in a quiet cove full of dolphins and birds. We had a wonderful day on the water...great temperature, beautiful scenery, little boat traffic and good company. It just doesn't get much better.

 This is just the boat house...can you imagine how large the main house is?
 This is what the shoreline looked like today.
