Melbourne to New Smyrna

 Our travels to New Smyrna Beach took us through the Indian River past Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island and Titusville.  We could see Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral in the distance.   At the north end of Merritt Island we passed through the Haulover Canal to enter the Mosquito Lagoon.  The canal is full of manatees.  

The remainder of the day was spent in  the NO WAKE ZONE.  It was a slow day of travel to get to New Smyrna Beach City Marina.  Charlene and I took off to explore the shops. Unfortunately for us, most were closing when we arrived.  We came away empty handed. However, we found this little Airstream cooler for our friends who just bought an Airstream.  

Dinner at the CorkScrew Bar & Grille was delicious.  We were joined by a sweet couple who knew Dave & Charlene when he worked in Lawrenceville.
