2003 Big Houses, Golf and other Recreation
We actually catch up to KALUAH and pass. As we pass them, we see someone standing fishing close to the channel and the water is only up to his thighs. He's pretty much captured the attention of the man at the helm of KALUAH.
This sign on the Palm Coast side of the waterway says:
"SANCTUARY" (which I think is the name of a development)
with a phone number and tacked on the right edge
We pass the north end of the Palm Coast waterways and canals, and look down at all the expensive houses. I guess these are 'estate sized'.
We pass a large area on the east side of the canal which appears to be some kind of construction project for a marina or something. The channel goes all the way in to a basin.
On the other side (the Palm Valley side) we see a relatively wild area, but with houses and things visible through the trees.
The blue ketch that went through the Crescent Beach bridge on the opening right after ours hangs in behind us for awhile. The name of the boat turns out to be BIGGLES and I hear on the radio (when they are talking to the bridges) that they are from Wrightsville Beach NC but it's not on the boat anywhere. Their anchor is perched on the bobstay, and their outboard is dotted with pink and white polka dots.
We note that many of the fixed bridges are not 65' at high tide. This bridge doesn't have any numbers on the tide board at all. Note the fishermen peering out from the other side of the fenders.
It (doesn't concern us much of course - we are only 58.5'), but we hear some questions on the radio about whether the boats behind us will have to wait for low tide. It's low tide for the bridges and high tide for the shoals.
Next Fox Cut and Flagler Beach - coming down toward Ormand Beach.
