After a late start of 10 AM because of a go pro malfunction we started out north toward our anchorage for the night. We were not sure exactly what to expect with the notice of Hurricane Matthew damage from the storm last October. We again were privileged to see dolphins swimming. The damage from Matthew was apparent as we saw boats on shore, masts sticking out of the water and palm trees leaning. Nothing to substantial at this point. As we entered the Haulage Canal which connects the brackish water of the estuary north of Cape Canaveral the drawbridge was being worked on and only one side was open. Much to our delight we were able to see a family of manatees as well. We thought they were logs in the water as you see by the pick. They were behind an old abandoned breakwall in an open area near the boat ramp.
