44 miles to Palm Coast

My run to the Palm Coast was short only 44 miles, I left the Yacht Club around 10am after breakfast and getting everything squared away on the boat.  The ICW around here is starting to feel more like home now that I’m getting away from the big towers, mega yachts and concrete seawalls I’m liking it a lot.  From Ft. Pierce FL to Norfolk VA the intracoastal is 12′ deep.  Pulling out of SYC I headed north up the ICW through New Smyrna Beach this part of the ICW takes you into the Halifax River which runs through Port Orange, Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach and Flagler Beach.  This is a very pretty route and you get to do lots of sightseeing of homes and stuff.  I arrived at Palm Coast Marina around 4:20pm and took a slip on their face dock for the evening, Palm Coast Marina is walking distance to European Village so I’m going to check that out this evening.  Hope everyone is having a great week! Pura Vida standing by.

Ponce De Leon Inlet Light.  At 175 feet tall, it is the tallest in the state and one of the tallest in the United States.

Last photo is the beach access for your vehicles that New Smyrna beach offers, sand was hard enough packed that I was able to ride my folding bike down it and it definitely doesn’t have wide tires
