Palm Cove (July 5th)

We departed beautiful St Augustine after church the morning of July 5th headed toward Palm Cove Marine, a short ~30 mile journey up the Atlantic ICW. On the way to Palm Cove, there were quite a lot of nice mansions and many docks on the water to motor by. Here are some of these great mansions we saw.

Notice the Mother -In-Law quarters too!?!

This sleepy little marina has a shallow entry but once we docked we found things to be quite nice, although at low tide, there was quite a bit of mud visible just 100 yards from the boat! Within a short walk we found a West Marine store, McDonalds and Publix. We’re all restocked now! We also hired a local diver to do a bottom cleaning ($120), which had not been done since early June in Titusville. We waited for high tide around 11AM Monday to avoid bumping the bottom or running aground when we left the shallow\narrow waterway out of this small marina. All was good until about 2PM when we were caught in a major lightening thunderstorm!!! We were pummeled with rain and talk about being nervous! One strike hit the water just about 100 yards from the boat and knocked the cellphone right out of Mary’s hand — she felt the lightening shock from the phone !!! Needless to say, we were glad when the storm passed and we were able to dock at Fernandina Beach Marina
