I assume the blue isn't its usual color.
The plan was sound: go to Cape Canaveral this morning, watch the launch, drop off the rental first thing in the morning, and get underway. The weather looked just like the trip here, cloudy, rainy, and breezy. While uneventful, it wasn't the best boating day.
Savannah had other plans. When she came out of her crate this morning one eye was gooped shut and swollen. I called a vet first thing, and got her an appointment. Poor girl has a small ulceration, but it can't be ignore. She'll need drops every 4 hour for the next 10 days.

We hemmed and hawed over what we should do. We even talked about just leaving now, given today's weather was quite lovely. In the end we concluded we'd stay in Titusville through the weekend and into next week. That way we could see the space place, put on the new canvas top, mend the dog a bit, and do other putter jobs around the boat.
Given that delay we've decided to bag the idea of going down the St. Johns River to Green Cove Springs.
On the plus side, the launch is looking good for tonight. Fingers crossed.
