C'est la Vie is a 1966 Charlie Morgan 34.

Her home port is Everglades City, FL. Our typical cruising area is Southwest Florida, the Florida Keys, the Southeastern Atlantic Seaboard, and the Bahamas. We are C'est la Vie's third owners and purchased her in 2005. We continue to maintain and update this classic vessel.

Thunderstorms over Titusville

A couple more thunderstorms rolled through in the early evening while anchored at Rockledge, FL in the Indian River.  

We awoke on the 8th to light northwest winds and mostly clear skys.  For the second day in a row Anne sailed off the anchor and back into the ICW without using the motor.  The winds were light so upon regaining the ICW we engaged the engine motorsailed northward. 

After arriving in Titusville at 12:50 and grabbing mooring A1, Anne served lunch.  We have patronized the Titusville Municipal Marina on past trips and find the staff to be friendly and helpful.  The facilities are a bit dated, but are always clean and functional.  Through various avenues we heard that the marina installed a mooring field.  Sure enough the new field straddles the channel into the marina basin.  The marina requested the we pick a mooring and then call in to inform them which ball we grabbed.

Arriving early allowed us the time to take showers, do laundry, refill our freshwater tanks, and get back out to C’est la Vie prior to the arrival of this afternoon’s thunderstorms. 

I am so pleased with the image of the afternoon storm moving over the Titusville Municipal Marina that I've added it to my Sea & Sky Ablum  .

Tomorrow we are planning to spend the day touring the Kennedy Space Center.
