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

May 25 - Cocoa, FL

Day 80 – Took Our Dinghy to Town
Indian River - Anchorage

We continued to travel through the Indian River today. It's wide and looks more like a lake to me. People were out skiing and jet skiing...summer is close. We anchored out in Cocoa; it is near Cape Canaveral and was the setting for 'I Dream of Jeannie'. This was our first time to anchor out and dinghy to town. We have left the boat while anchored, but we've always been with in site of it. Cocoa has a dinghy dock near their historic downtown area, so we left the dinghy there and walked around town. Stan had to take a look at the S.F. Travis Hardware store...it's been in business since 1885. They advertise they have every thing you need. Reminded us a lot of Melcher's Hardware, and they truly had a little of everything. We wondered through a few of the other stores and then had an early dinner at a little sidewalk cafe. Our anchorage tonight is right by a bridge, so it won't be as quiet and peaceful as last night, but it will do. We are planning on spending the holiday weekend in St. Augustine, so we have a couple of long days ahead of us.
