Melbourne Causeway Anchorage

We are excited today as we will be heading into our hometown to anchor. While we have travelled the area extensively by car this will be the first time by water. We will also be passing by the Cape and while no rockets are expected to launch it will be a much different view by water. The anchors are up by 7 a.m. and we are soon underway. We are enjoying the view as we pass through the haul over canal and then about an hour later the NASA RR bridge and finally an hour after that we are passing under the NAA Causeway bridge. We are now on the Indian river and are starting to see some familiar sites although from the back side of what we are used to. We take our time and enjoy the scenery and by 4:30 we are dropping anchor across from the Melbourne Causeway bridge. Tomorrow we will be our last day with our group as they are headed across Lake Okeechobee to the west coast while we will spend the winter in Stuart. We watch a beautiful full moon over the river and are quickly to bed.
