Cocoa Village Marina again

Another easy motor sail up the Indian River with a nice breeze to Cocoa Village Marina. This is a terrific place to stay because of the cutesy downtown nearby--with lots of great restaurants. Our goal was to get there in time to catch the second round of the Masters. Gotta have cable sometime!

One of the big trawlers that Captain Pete admired (as they passed us) was Moon Beam from Charlottesville. Owners Peter and Didi are "loopers" on their way home and invited us onboard for docktails later that afternoon. They are on their way home on their counterclockwise loop (up the Hudson, through canals and some Great Lakes, down the Mississippi, along the Gulf Coast, etc.) All with a Golden Retriever and a cat! They shared some great loop stories during dinner at The Black Tulip restaurant nearby.
