Magnolia departed Daytona Beach for a leisurely day southbound on the ICW. I must emphasize that we have REALLY grown to enjoy these leisurely days. Days when we don’t have too far to go, when we know we have a comfortable anchorage or marina ahead of us and some special event awaits us upon our arrival. In the case of Titusville it was a two’fer. We had one maintenance action to care of and one social event we have been looking forward too.
As we continued on our way it became quite evident we were starting to approach southern Florida where the high rises start and there is a bit more splash to the surroundings.
Where else but in Florida would you see decorate bridge pilings that appear to have tile mosaics installed. I thought they were very cool.

The real reason to visit Titusville was to host our friends Ty & Suzanne. They have previously been designated the “Dealers” in this blog post. Essentially Ty & Suzanne is where this whole idea of Magnolia began.
Rudy, the redhead and his little sister Gretchen were also welcomed aboard Magnolia. Rudy is actually, Rudy the super dog because that dog has done something I have never done. Rudy sailed with Ty & Suzanne aboard their boat SV Liberty. What makes Rudy really super though is he sailed with them across the Atlantic and Mediterranean Oceans all the way to Turkey. That’s why he is called Rudy the Super Dog!
I do have to give a plug to Suzanne’s various books two of our favorites are “It’s your boat too” and “Living a Dream.” All of her books are available on Amazon at this link.
We are off to Coca, FL, just across from Cape Canaveral for a few day chore catch up and shore leave for the crew!
