New Smyrna Beach to Banana River

The Dolphins were showing off for us today! At one point 5 of them were following us. They are so much fun to watch. Someone told us the mullet are running now - dolphins are happy to grab an easy snack.

The tidal current was with us today- we covered 70 miles in just under 8 hours- sweet! We decided to anchor in one of our favorite spots this evening, in the Banana River just above Mathers Bridge. How perfect is that?! 

We will continue to travel south tomorrow although we are having trouble finding a marina on the eastern portion of the Okeechobee Waterway. It seems that lots of boats are holed up at Indiantown and River Forest waiting for better weather. We might decide to spend a few days in Fort Pierce until conditions improve.
