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

April 3 - Jacksonville, FL

Ortega Yacht Club Marina

“Everybody needs some time to rejuvenate, refresh, recharge and begin again."―Revathi Sankaran

We enjoyed a slow morning. Taking in the view from the flybridge as we drank our coffee. The marina was quiet, we only saw a few people moving around, but the seagulls were out in mass having their breakfast and squawking to each other. I'm not sure what they have to say to each other, but the chatter never seemed to end. We also watched a bald eagle circle around, dive towards the water and catch something to eat. As he flew away with his fish, several sea gulls followed. Hoping, I guess, that he would drop his catch and they could retrieve it. Very entertaining. 

After a relaxing start to our day we both got busy taking care of cores around the boat. I unpacked, defrosted the freezer and did a little grocery shopping. Stan cleaned and began waxing the starboard side of our haul. The end of our day took place were it began...relaxing on the flybridge enjoying the view.
