Day 154. Daytona Beach

There was a new cruise ship at Port Canaveral this morning, the 129,000 ton Disney Dream. We thought we had finished with locks but to get to Port Canaveral Yacht Club we went through yet another lock that neither rose us or sent us lower but increments the number of locks we have done up another two, up to about 122.

We saw a number of manatees today, sometimes in groups of three or four. Hard to photograph so I grabbed photo from Wikimedia commons. Similar to Australia’s dugong but much bigger at 8 feet long. They were on the endangered species list but have increased populations 500% in the last 25 years. Our location tonight and probably tomorrow night is the Seven Seas Marina, a snap at $32 a night and only 10 minutes walk to the main drag at Daytona Beach, Atlantic Avenue. There is a neat cafe here at the marina as well open for breakfast and lunch.
